Package Install Day

I've got new places to keep bees this year.  In fact, there are so many places that I had to by packaged bees.  All of the packages are being started at our main apiary. I got through the entire day and tens of thousands of bees without getting stung at the farm.

Bad news is that I stuck my hand in my pocket once I had my gear off. You guessed it, there was a bee in the pocket that got me right on the knuckle.  My hand looks like it was hit with a hammer. Oh well.... I'll head back in a couple of days and see if I can let the queens loose without any stings.
