Picked up my packages today and installed them this afternoon. I went full suit, but no gloves following the advice many have given about wearing gloves. I got one right in the side of my thumb installing the second box. Good news is, even though it's been years since I was stung by a honey bee, I barely noticed it and the pain went away in about 20 minutes... so I guess for now at least, this hobby won't be too painful. Still a shame I was stung on my very first day as a beekeeper. :grin: I also dropped a frame when I was putting them back in and squashed a couple girls. :???: My supplier gave us these interesting candy plugs to put into the queen cages after we pulled the cork out, it was a hard sugar candy inside of a rubber tube. I suspended the queen cage on a rubber band around the frame. How long should I leave it in there before removing it? The tube was about an inch long.
