    Question hello from Beaverton,Oregon.

    This is a cool site.I'm not very good with a comp. but the site is easy to navigate.I caught my first swarm in 98 in an empty hive.Last year I caught one off the ground that my daughter spotted. Last week I hung a box trap with 7or8 frames in a tree near where I caught the swarm last yr. Saturday night they spent the night and seem to be doing good. My question is how long should I leave them alone?

    You can move them now or wait two weeks to be really confident. That will give the queen time to lay eggs that will be pupa by then. They will be stronger. The brood will counter any urges to leave.

    Welcome. Lots O' NW Beeks hangout at this site.

    You can move the capture anytime if you have to, but as America's Beek said, better to leave them alone for a while to let them settle in.
