Video of a New Beekeeper Installing Bees

I found this video today of a new beekeeper installing bees for the first time in his new hive.  I can see this being my wife and I in about 3 weeks when we install our two hives.  Two things this guy doesn't use that he probably should: smoke and sugar water.  I kept wondering where this guy's smoker was to calm the bees.  Also, I've heard of people spraying their bees with a solution of sugar water while they are still in the bee box; this calms them down and keeps them focused on eating the sugar on their bodies.

I plan on Dawn video taping our experiences like this so everyone can see what happens!  Hope mine has a better ending than this guy!
