Spring is here (or at least is always around the corner!) So, it’s time (always time!) to start thinking about bees!

There is so much to learn about bees and I’m right there learning with you! The beauty of bees is that you don’t have to know everything about them, you just need to know someone else who knows everything!

I’ve just recently installed a package of bees for the first time and I’m going to go into detail in this post on how to install a bee package. Just keep in mind, that there are different ways to do things depending on preference, how we were taught, what’s worked best in the past and the area we live in, and if you are an experienced beekeeper, someone who works in an apiary or are an average individual like me, learning about bees. All of these factors affect how a bee package is installed. You will be seeing first-hand footage of me learning (in action!) how to do this. And I hope it is the first of many as I expand my beehives.

So, I’m going to share with you what has worked well in the heart of Central Montana for a man who has raised bees for over 30 years. (Thank you, Tom, for helping me!) If you are new to beekeeping, read this post on 10 helpful tips to get started with bees to see why I believe it’s important to find someone in your area to help you.

I’ve laid out in this PDF the steps on how to install a bee package: How to install a bee package steps. Feel free to download it, print it out, and take it with you to the hive as you install your package of bees.

I just watched your (or our) fantastic video. What I want to know is, where did you get that skilled helper who looked so professional? And is that short beekeeper a licensed BeeMan? Next you could produce a blockbuster video called BeeMan Wipes Out Hive Collapse Syndrome.

You were a fabulous skilled helper! And the BeeMan in the background was the key ingredient to our success. How would we have known that there were bees on us, if not for him? Bringing up the young ones to love bees!
