Good luck! :)

move gently, take your time. Double check everything in place before you close up and leave.

I did my 2nd big inspection of my 2 new hives a few days ago (on their 12th day after installing nucs), and I found that a discrete puff of smoke every few minutes really kept them calm. We all stayed calm and I took my time in both hives. It went really well and it helped my confidence so much.
That in contrast to my 1st inspection a week before that with no smoke- when they slowly got more and more agitated while I was taking out and checking frames...finally they got obviously angry and I had to close up way too quickly and get the heck out of there! :cool:
