Today the package bees were ready for pickup. There’s an older gentleman in our bee club, by the name of Tom Webb, who drives down to Georgia every April (practically every beekeeper in northern NJ knows him as he’s been a beekeeper for 75 years!) and picks them up for himself and for anyone who wants to buy them from him. He arrived home last night with 300 3-lb. packages of bees. Bill leaves work early on Fridays, so he drove up and got them. I think he’s very brave, my sweet city boy, to drive all the way home from High Point with stray bees flying around in the cab of the pickup. He only got stung once. Tomorrow I will take them all to the farm and install them into their new hives. I promise to take photos!
