New Bees

One of the bees queen boxes was completely open. The other we had to ‘assist’ to get the queen out and into her hive. The queen boxes come plugged with a small piece of hard candy. The worker bees eat through the candy to release the queen into the hive. We put the bees and the queen boxes into the empty hives when the bees arrived three days ago. Today we went back and took out the boxes as they were no longer necessary.Queen cells
