It’s our annual Package Bee Pickup Day in Hamilton, IL! The bees arrived around 10:00 a.m., kept cool and safe in a refrigerated truck that travelled from our reliable suppliers in the South. They were greeted by several hundred customers who couldn’t wait to get their new bees and all the supplies needed to keep their hives happy and healthy. The honey bees are now settling into their new homes, and have plenty of work waiting for them with the dandelions blooming in our area. We wish all the beekeepers good luck this year with their Honey Bees!
