Today I picked up my bee package and about 6:30 pm I put the bees in the hive. This is my first time doing this. I attempted to uncork the queen box so the bees could get to the candy and release her. They put candy in as a time release for releasing the queen, this way the workers can get used to her, otherwise they might kill her if she gets out too soon. Anyway I pulled the cork and saw the bees inside the queen package, oops. Quickly I replaced the cork. Then I hung the queen box in the hive as your supposed to do, but still corked.
Now I'm starting to panic a little, unsure of what to do next. I drop in the box with the bee package into the hive and open it then covered the hive. Meg takes the syrup for the bees to feed on and fills up my feeder, I place the syrup feeder so the bees can feed.
