    Re: Queen in a swarm

    just watch the outside of the cluster and you may see her come to the surface. If I remember correctly last year I found 7 queens in one swarm.

    Re: Swarming hive

    If you split out the original queen and leave all the swarm cells they may cast multiple swarms!

    I did just as you to a number of hives. Then my weather turned bad. Now I've been experiencing a swarming nightmare. Check out my thread "tossed virgins photo".

    Re: tossed Virgins photo

    The real questions are;
    Did any of the swarm queens mate well with all the bad weather I've had?
    Can I get them back into shape and make a honey crop?

    Re: swarm video with queen capture

    They settled on a hive next door. I just watched the cluster and would pick the queens out as I found them.
