I relocated the Bees in the bird house today. It was anything but smooth. The bees were more than patient with me and I was only stung about five times. The one one my upper eye lid was the most uncomfortable.
The bees are beautiful and their work never ceases to amaze me! The video below will show you almost the entire relocation process. I am very relieved to have them in the Top Bar Hive and hope they do well with all the new space they have to grow.
They began to use their new front door very quickly and this gives me hope they will survive. Time will tell!
