I'm new and I'm glad I found this forum. I have lots of questions. I only have 3 swarms and have an oppurtunity to get another swarm. The problem is this swarm was caught in a hive without frames. They have been in there for 2 years and the guy that caught wants rid of them. I was thinking of putting a brood box on top and somehow capping them off and moving them home. Is there hope? I have not attempted to open the hive to see what I'm up against.
