One thing most books don’t tell you about bees…

They smell amazing.

I caught a whiff of my package bees before unloading them, and it was incredible. Subtle, but deep and rich.

During my first inspection the other day, I smelled the queen cage after taking it out, and it had a similar fragrance to it, but already much more like fresh honey (of which there is definitely none in the hive, yet).

Just saying… Go smell your bees. If you have them. Maybe don’t try sniffing a wild hive. I could see that ending poorly.
