Yesterday ,about an hour before sunset , I took my swarm trap out of a tree and hived the swarm about 100 feet away from the tree. This morning there is good activity at the new hive, but there is also a large cloud of bees hovering in the tree around the place where the trap had been. The bees had been living in the trap about 10 days.
Am I going to lose the swarm? Is there anything I can do to help the bees find their new home? I am a hobby beekeeper with two hives plus this new possible one. The trap was one of those paper mache buckets with a lure in it. The lure is now in the new hive, and I used the "branch in front of the Hive" to help them get orientated. (I am almost sure I got the queen)
