Package bees in Lynnville

We are now finished with the annual package bee deliveries. The larger load arrived at our place at 200 a.m., so there was not much sleep that night!

Alex, Dad, and I carried the packages from the back of the truck into the garage. By the end of it, we had more packages than ever to distribute. They were stacked too high to get good pictures at first, but after some of them were taken away, the other pallets became visible.

It always seems like a mountain of bees to distribute, but within 48 hours they are gone. We’ve had to get our paperwork better organized as more customers go on the package list every year–we also sell buckets of syrup, honey, and some feeders at the same time, so the three of us keep busy on package days.

Good luck with your bees!
