{Keeping Bees} The Arrival!!!

We picked up our nuc of Italian bees last night around 7. We transferred 5 frames filled with thousands and thousands of bees into our hive wearing a head lamp and a holding a flashlight (along with all our bee protective gear). I've given birth to two boys and have sky dived out of an airplane, and handling bees ranks right up there with those things that are terrifying while also exhilarating. I've checked on the bees several times today. They are just so fascinating! We'll check inside the hive in a few days after this cool spell passes through to make sure things are going well. Signs from the outside indicate they are making a happy new home.
