    pick them up today, two established nucs the queens are laying well, really couldn't go through them all that much because it was raining. I transferred the one nuc into a standard hive. and the girls were less than thrilled.
    decided to leave the second one for tomorrow when the raining stops and the Sun is out. of course thinking that they would be somewhat mild I didn't have a lit smoker, remedied that a little later, did remember the bee veil and amazingly enough only one got under the veil and stung me in the neck not others were not trying. just have to keep reminding myself its a windy rainy day it will be better tomorrow lol

    Every time I try to get buy without lighting a smoker, I end up lighting a smoker.
