INSTALLING PACKAGES AND NUCS



The following videos will help new beekeepers in their installations. LCBA recommends you always wear protective gear: gloves and suit. The beekeepers in some of these videos do not.

When you call each of these videos up YouTube gives a list of other associated videos covering install by various beekeepers. It's good to look at several as each has a little different approach.
