Swarms issues and conditions

Lots of swarms are being reported. Why given the conditions? Are we experiencing starving hives absconding. Have people been checking the conditions back at
The original hive bees? Stores? Queencells? Would like to get some feedback


Recently inspected my two hives. No queen cells, but they have burned through what stores they had earlier in spring (I became concerned when they weren’t putting on weight). I’m now feeding both hives, I suspect I would lose them otherwise (unless we get better weather for nectar). It’s a shame as they both came out of winter firing on all cylinders.

I’ve seen no swarms. I have a bait hive box set up, but it has attracted nothing so far.
