7 days one of my strong hives swarmed because it was honey bound. I caught the swarm and am waiting foe it to get going. I have seen the queen and she is a new one not marked. But the old hive when opened today has brace comb everywhere sticking all of the frames together in the top 2 inches in both brood boxes and the bees are not touching the supers (2). I am not using a queen excluder on this hive. it is too cool to keep the hive open looking for the queen.
