Just an update on the swarm I caught two weeks ago.
I added another box as when I looked at the hive on Wednesday they had drawn all the 10 frames out with comb and a lot of bees, as I had to move the swarm box off the stand it was on and when moving the bees came out in droves and flew around for several hours.
I noticed for the next couple of days bees flying all around this area in the photo, it is directly above the swarm catch.
And just now ( Saturday 2:30 pm) this I what I found.
As you can see a little cluster has formed, used to be a beehive in that spot about 5 or 6 years ago, could be longer and it was their for a lot of years.
So do you think they have moved in to that spot and robbing the hive that they swarmed to , here is a photo today of the box the swarm went into 2 weeks ago.
Looked OK to me.
And this is a photo of the two in relationships to each other.
What are your thoughts, could they have swarmed again?
