If you have a package of live bees and a beehive ready to go, you might be wondering how to get those honey-makers into the hive. If so, this video is for you, as it walks you through the process of hiving your bees from the items needed (including a mini marshmallow!) to the proper time of day to place your bees into their new home. All parts of the hive are shown, and you are instructed on how to locate the queen and keep her from escaping before the hive has accepted the scent of her pheromones.
