new nucs on screened bottom board

akia703(8)April 29, 2012

I just received 2 new nucs last night and installed them. They are thousands hanging on the bottom of the screened bottom board and I can't figure out why. Is this normal?

Nucs or packages of bees. Installed them, please describe.
One, you may have let the queen get outside. Give us a little more detail on what and where and how you installed them. You can just scoop up the hanging bees and pour then into your new hive or just let them find their own way.
