Found approximately 10 queen swarm cells in one hive today. Lately, many of the bees have been gathering outside the box so we knew something was up. Even found one queen cell opened/hatched. The box had so many bees, it did not look like a swarm happened.
We took several queen cells and make 3 nucs from them and left plenty of bees in the hive.
The hive has two large supers which were full of bees.
Will see what happens but I can say "it has begun".
