    Oh a go pro why didn’t I think of that. I was trying to document my inspections so I can make some notes about each inspection later but used a camera on a tripod. A gopro would be a better idea. Have a few of those laying around. Maybe I’ll do that next time. Yeah I found the hardest part of the install is getting the candy into the queen box. I used a couple marshmallows. Have you added the 2nd box yet? Got my bees around the same time as you did. One of my hives is doing pretty well and added 2nd box but other one still isn’t ready for it yet. I’m using 8 frame mediums though and looks like you are using 10 frame deeps?

    If you haven’t started thinking about it yet, start thinking about what you’re going to do for mite management. I bought some plastic drone frames which attract the mites and when the bees cap them you remove the frame and freeze them which kills the baby drone bees as well as the mites. You can also feed them to chickens.

    When I was 14 I had a big beehive on my window inside my room! Every other day I would get a sting but was all fine until after my mom called the animal control or something like that and they took it away… When I got home from school I saw the queen she had beautiful eyes like she was full body with stripes… By the night I saw them building up in corner of my bed so I had to use a vacuum cleaner to suck them out of there ! It was an awesome experience for couple of months

    Do you still have the bees?

  8. Lisa Walters on July 8, 2019 at 2:11 pm

    So interesting and YES…save the BEES!

    Just watched this again. Love the impromptu interview at the end – do more of these please 😀

    Laura and Aaron – loved this video. I loved the Q&A sesssion at the end. I hope you try beekeeping again. Third time the charm!? The bees don’t know what they are missing on by just abandoning the hive.

  11. Renson Angala on July 8, 2019 at 2:13 pm

    I keep rewatching your vids Laura 😂 so addictive

  12. Wade Scott on July 8, 2019 at 2:14 pm

    Awesome!!!! Keep us updated!!! I want to start my own behive so I’m excited to see you guys having them and making videos!!

  13. Yao S. on July 8, 2019 at 2:17 pm

    Laura you are so lovely! love you and your channel!

  14. Yvonne Ligtelijn on July 8, 2019 at 2:17 pm

    How is beekeeping these days? I don’t see the hive in your videos lately. Sometimes the queen starts a new hive somewhere else. Did you had that problem? And how was your ‘harvest’? Curious for an update. Greetings from The Netherlands.

    My local post office loves it when I mail order queens. For them, it’s rare to see.
    A great Facebook group is Women in Beekeeping. They’re very friendly and helpful

    en la entrada de mi casa se esta haciendo un panal de abejas de miel de chumelo… pero yo voy a pedir que se lo lleven para alguien que sepa aprovecharlo, jiji… Con lo que haces pues estoy pensando mejor como puedo hacerlo yo!!!

    I certainly hope to purchase a bee hive & gear once my inheritance arrives. (step-father passed away) Might as well set up something beneficial to the environment and my family from his gift to me. =)

    We have soooooo many common interests! I’ve always been curious about bees but thought I’d need some land and a crop for them to eat. So very cool you have a local store to go to and use as a resource! Oh my word….LOVE THIS! 🐝you are my garden SUPER HERO!❤️

  19. Marie-Christine Lachance on July 8, 2019 at 2:22 pm

    Your mom? She looks more like your sister! ^^
    On another note, i am so deeply scared of bees wasps and hornets that i could never be your neighbor so owning à hive is a huge no-no for me! I wish they didnt bother me as much, because of the way you speak about them. You seem to be fond of them and thats really cute

  20. Midwest Girl on July 8, 2019 at 2:23 pm

    Are you going to harvest the honey? Or do you have them strictly for pollination purposes?

  21. Boyd Family on July 8, 2019 at 2:26 pm

    Laughed so hard at the end! Love your videos! Greetings from Oxford, Alabama

  22. T Bissonnette on July 8, 2019 at 2:29 pm

    Would love to see more of your set up, stand for your hive, and measures you take to keep out ants.

  23. Mollie Baum on July 8, 2019 at 2:32 pm

    Haha! This is a great video! good luck with your new pet! 🙂

  24. Turmeric Banana on July 8, 2019 at 2:35 pm

    Y’all look like sisters

    There are definitely pluses to bee sting – I had a precious uncle with RA and they used the bee venom to help with the pain

  26. Queencymae Dabao on July 8, 2019 at 2:41 pm

    how exciting! i dont own a bee hive but our previous neighbor has 6 of them in the backyard. i always watch them when they are harvesting honeys. when can you start harvesting honey? do you need to replace the worker bees after a couple of months? because you said they die after 6 weeks or so? or will it be possible to harvest a new queen bee from your first beehive?

    Bee stings are good for arthritis and chronic pain. But why? These calm little girls in most hives do not care at all that you are there or tending to them….that’s why you really just need a smoker and maybe gloves……its not like you think at all….they are too busy to care about human caretakers…..i bet they do memorize your face….very meticulous and smart.

  28. Rhonda Thompson on July 8, 2019 at 2:43 pm

    Love this video and anything you do with your mom! Wish she showed up more. It reminds me of stuff I used to do with my mom ;’). Love the ad lib q&a at the end 😀 I’m now officially inspired to investigate beekeeping! bzzzz

  29. Turmeric Banana on July 8, 2019 at 2:44 pm

    I’m not liking this…..you’re taking advantage of honey bees for your own profit and you’re basically keeping these bees in a jail to work as slaves TO MAKE YOU HONEY? YOU SUCK!! ANIMAL MURDER -.-

    This is so fun!!! You’ve motivated me to look into this!❤️
