    I have built a warre with two hive boxes for my back yard but have not yet aquired any bees. My qoeitsun is, specifically, hows one install bees into a warre hive? Do you just dump in the top hive box or perhaps remove a few top bars and load them through that space into the next box down? Please let me know. Gerry

      Great Question – The easiest way to install bees within a Warre hive is to setup the two boxes, with only the bars in the bottom box. Then, you’ll want to remove the bars out of the top box. This creates a “funnel” of which you simply dump the bees inside; be sure to spray them thoroughly with a sugar water mix (you can always add Nectar Gold as well!) to pacify them. Once inside replace the top bars (one with the queen) and put the top on. Place the package that contained your bees beside the entrance to allow the remaining bees to move inside their new home.
