This package contained two complete orders of honey bees. An order for "packaged" bees contains approximately three pounds of bees plus one queen bee.
Once I had signed off on my delivery, my delivery guy shot off a list of questions...
- Do you have honey bees?
- How many hives do you have?
- Is there a queen bee inside here?
- How do you get them out of here?
- Have you ever been stung?
- Do you wear a suit?
- Do you have honey?
- Do you react to bee stings?
- How many times have you been stung?
- How do you get the queen out?
It really was a funny conversation with a guy that normally throws things on the porch, rings the bell, and is usually speeding out of the driveway by the time you open the door.
I did my best to answer most of his questions, but when it came to the questions that pertained to this delivery, I was sort of at a loss. For one thing, I have never ordered "packaged" bees before. I was hoping that there would be some sort of instructions that came with the package, but as you can see...not so much.
After he left, I did what most people would do in an instance like this, I logged on to YouTube.
After watching this video, I grabbed all my stuff, loaded my truck because I was setting these bees up at a different location, and drove on down the road. While making the short trip, I had to stop and think about what I was doing.
When did my life become watching a YouTube video, loading up my crap, and doing what some guy said to do?
What's happened to me?
