    looks like they aren't grouped together, does that mean they lost the queen?

    That's about 30 min.s after they arrived. They had already moved into the boxes. We'll have to fish them out tonight.

    So did the entire swarm move into one of your existing hives? Would they attempt to supercede an existing queen or did you have an empty hive there?

    nice. I caught my first swarm of the year today too. It was hanging on the side of another hive in one of my yards. I don't think they planned for the high winds we had today. scrapped them off into a nuc box.
