It is fun and a little chaotic getting the bees to go from one to box to another. First, you have to spray the bees down with sugar water. This reduces their ability to fly. Then, you remove the queen who is in her own separate cage called the "queen cage" and the sugar water can.

Sometimes, the queen isn't accepted even if the beekeeper follows the rules. Luckily, our bees accepted their new queen and she is successfully laying eggs and growing her family!
