This is my first ever honey bee package experience. Sorry if the pictures arent super clear as i was a bit nervous while doing this for the first time.
They were clustered up here for warmth. you could feel it through the hardware cloth
You have to remove the lid on top first.
This is the queen cage. You can see the queen is marked to make it a bit easier to find her when she is in the hive.
Not all of the bees come out of the package so these bees that are fanning at the entrance are letting the other bees know its a good place to stay.
If you guys are interested in more let me know.
