How to Install Package Bees Video

See how to install a package of bees and a queen. I shook the bees in the hive, but I would prefer to simply set the package in the hive take the queen cage out and put that in the hive, then return the next day and remove the package cage. The Warre Hive is too small to set the package inside.

I set the feeder wrong, so make sure to watch the end to see where the feeder is supposed to go on a Warre. Also, I simply placed the queen cage down in horizontally. This worked fine for me, but many beekeepers hang the cage with the candy side up.
