Setting Up A New Bee Yard

We at BRBS sometimes end up pulling the graveyard shift. Last night was one of those nights. Somewhere around 10:00 pm- we started screening up hive entrances, and by 6 am-viola! 13 of our colonies were anxiously inspecting their new yard. It only took 4 hrs for 5 amateur beekeepers with 2 pickup trucks to move and set up 4 stands and 13 hives. We will not discuss in any detail the 4 stings and 2 hives that separated while loading. Let’s just say it was definitely an eventful night (especially the bee in Ryan’s veil).

From all of us at BRBS- happy beekeeping and have a good weekend.
