    Feed them as much syrup as they'll take and don't expect to get any honey. They should do fine.

    "Swarm in May is worth a load of hay"!
    Like Micheal says, feed them and they will be fine.

    A swarm set up housekeeping in my yard at the end of June, and they are fine. They are living between the walls of the cold frame, and I have never done anything with them so far. I am now trying to split the colony by giving them supers to grow into.
