I’ve put a video here, and I’ll post another soon. https://www.facebook.com/SydneyFlowHiveCommunity/
So I got my package from the wonderful folks at Hornsby Beekeeping Supplies, picked up some other essentials along the way. Some folks from the bee club invited themselves along, big mistake, I should have said no. Their opinions were loud and disapproving as they tried to arrange my hive to their liking, it made for a frustrating and annoying experience for my first time putting bees into a hive. Once they were gone though, I got to sit back and admire my bees. They are remarkable. Little golden fairies. I love them. The queen is alive and kicking, as a moving carpet of bees work on drawing up comb beneath her, the attendants chewing at the candy to free the queen. The hive has gone through about 2-3 cups of sugar water and it has been 6 hours.
