Chesterfield Post Office Dock
Dumping bees into hive
In April 2008 I ordered 3 pounds of hybrid honeybees and one queen from Queen Right Colonies, Ltd. of Spensor, Ohio.  This year the cost of bees went up a lot. This shipment cost about ninety-five dollars. They were shipped on Tuesday May 6th after many weeks of bad weather. They arrived at 3:00 pm on Wednesday May 7th with only a couple of dead bees. It is not
 uncommon to have a one inch layer of dead bees upon arrival.  The post office calls to ask if you want to come and get your bees or have them delivered. I went and got them and here is the process of installing them.
