Be sure to have your hive equipment assembled, painted, and ready for your bees.  You will also need some sugar syrup made ahead of time (cooled to room temperature) to feed your bees once they are installed in the hive.  You can view our sugar syrup tutorial here.  Protein patties are also a good addition – your bees have no pollen or honey in reserve. Full instructions detailing how to install your bees and hang the queen cage will be provided when you pick up your bees.
