Bee Shaking 2011



   I've got to run out the door real quick here to go back up to Davis for more work related stuff but I wanted to real quick post our pictures of the bee package adventure.

   My boss and I drove up to pick up packages of bees from a bee breeder to augment our current stocks. In the following slide show you will see (1) some pictures from the bee breeder's facility, including their very nice office; (2) various scenery up there; (3) bee breeder's employees shaking bees from their hives into the packages; (4) loading up the packages onto our truck; (5) pictures from the journey down here; (6) us and volunteers from the Orange County Beekeeper's Association shaking the bees from the packages into our boxes (well I didn't actually get any pictures of the actual shaking because I was busy at the time but pictures from before and after that); (7) insane amounts of bees in the air!!

So check it out:
