|Removing the frames from a transport box|
|The students stayed pretty far away|
One of the students said they got stung, but it may have been an excuse because then they were able to leave and no one yelled. I wasn't dressed up in the bee suits and took the photos about six feet away. Victor only got stung once, and he said it was his fault because he pushed the bee with his finger when it was in the way.
|do you see the queen?|
Every box got one new frame to build honeycomb on, besides the ones they came in covered with bees. Garry and Victor would try to spot the queen as he pulled them out and then placed them in the new boxes. It took a couple hours to get them all settled into their new homes.
This doubles the number of hives, and we hope to get more this summer, maybe split some hives that are larger, or find a stray hive looking for a home.
