Our Italian honeybees arrived today! In March, we ordered two three-pound packages from Coastal Farm and Ranch. We're so glad that the bees came during warm weather this year. They were full of energy, buzzing around my head as I shook them out of the packages and into the hives.
We decided to set up the two hives further away from each other so that if something happens to one hive, hopefully, the other one will still be okay.
