This Easter weekend signaled the resurrection of the Princeton bees! On Saturday we had a good group of volunteers come down to the BEE yard where we removed our old hives, constructed a storage trunk, and put down mulch for our bee yard (to stop problems we have been having with weeds). It was a beautiful day and nice to do some manual work!
Today, with the help of Bob Harris, we successfully installed two boxes of bees into new supers. Bob instructed our group on the proper way to introduce the bees to their new home.

We will return to the hives on Thursday to make sure the bees are acclimating well. Exciting times at the BEE Team!
