    Can you track them? Are they USPS? If so, give your office a heads up to call you as soon as they come in, so you can pick them up. Take a spray bottle of 1:1 so you can give them a shot of food... the holes in the syrup can are tiny, to keep travel vibrations from making a mess.

    I know! :D =D Just wanted to give you a heads up off what to expect. There will be dead ones. They can still rock and roll with 2 lbs of bees, you just need the get them out so they can do their thing.
