Step 2: Pry open the top of the package.
Step 3: While holding the package sideways over the hive, gently slide out the can of syrup.
Step 5: Gently brush off the bees from the cage and using the craft stick and rubber band, fashion a sling for the queen cage, to suspend it between two frames. Others prefer to use a staple gun to staple the cage to two frames, but I am too afraid I might injure the queen, so I use this method.
Step 7: Place the queen cage between two center frames, with the mesh side facing down and slide the frames tight on either side of the cage.
Step 9: Place the package with any remaining bees in front of the hive entrance.
The bees will send out a pheromone to their sisters, fanning their butts in the air, to call them into the hive. If you watch for awhile, you will see the bees remaining in the package march right into the hive. I usually wait a day and then put in the entrance reducer.
Check that your queen has been released in three days. If she is still in her cage, open the other cork and let her walk into the entrance of the hive. Add the last frame into the hive and close it back up for at least a week for them to settle in.
