BEE’S

Last month I signed up for a beginner’s bee keeping class, then at the end of the month we were going to be able to get a Nuc of bee’s.   I put my name on the list and yesterday at the bee keeping meeting, I found out that the bee’s were ready for pick up tonight.   One of the gentlemen in charge of putting the order’s together, was very nice and picked it up for me since I wasn’t able to get them at the set time as I had other obligations tonight.   So I picked them up from the gentleman and I am supposed to set them on top of the hive they will live in and then tomorrow transfer them into the big hive.    The thing I am worried about the most is making sure I have smoked them enough that they will be sleepy and be less likely to get mad and want to swarm and sting me.   The nuc I ordered has 5 frames of bee’s and my hive is an 8 frame, so I will have five extra     frames to either start a nuc with if my hive swarms or I can then add them to the hive eventually.  I really wish that I had been able to go through the class before I got the bee’s, but I am glad that I have a few people I can ask for help, if I need it.
