My bees are suppose to be here Monday...yay!! Will i need to keep them shut in the hive for a few days with food or no? This is package bees. Dandelions are finally up and flowering here, tulips are up as well and a few other things so i dont know if they will have enough to forage. Some wild flowers across the road in the neighbors field are in bloom as well.
Ok so no bees yet and im getting concerned. I misread the proof of sale, they were suppose to be shipped monday. So is it normal for bees to take 3+ days to reach you? They are coming from Georgia to Michigan.
Meanwhile the crab apple trees, and my macintosh apple trees have bloomed, goldenrod is out and my lilacs bushes will pop their blooms any time now.
