Honey Bees

DSCF3848

Our honey bees came!!  One of Mike’s coworkers went with him to pick them up and get everything set up.  They came in a little box with metal mesh on the sides.  Mike thinks there were probably a couple thousand bees in the box.  He put the queen in first and then emptied the rest of the box into the hive.  We checked on them last night and they got the queen out the box she was in and they have quite a bit of comb going already!  It’s really interesting to see them.  They are much more friendly than we anticipated too, which is nice. 🙂
