Just went in today to look at my TBH #1. I've been concerned about swarming because I've seen thousands of bees cover the wall outside the entrance and inside the hive OUTside the follower board. I stopped my inspection about 2/3s through for reasons I'll elaborate on in another post shortly.
I saw the queen, capped brood, some drone brood, but I didn't see any swarm cells on the combs I looked at, but I really didn't get deep into the brood nest - which was the last 1/3 of the hive.
I took photos and I'm ready to send them, but I can't figure how to attach them to the forum messages. Any help would be appreciated.
