Obviously they get shipped this way so they are designed to be able to spend a few days to a week in there I would guess. My bees are getting bumped up about a week earlier then they were before. This is good, and bad. Mine are being brought into the state by the seller/grower, not shipped via common carrier. So I will get them on April 17th which is a Sunday. Sunday is my Monday and my busiest day of the week, it will be a bit of a feat just to leave work for an hour to go get them. That being said, I will likely have to bring them back to work with me and keep them in the car or wrapped up at my desk so as to not alarm people.
I won’t get them home until around 9-9:30 pm that night. So they won’t get installed until the next morning before work. Should I do anything in particular with them when I get them home to keep them happy until morning?
