Combining Swarm With Original Hive
One of my hives swarmed yesterday while I was in the bee yard. I got the swarm with the old queen into a single deep and removed all but two of the swarm cells in the hive. But now I am wondering if I could either 1. remove the remaining swarm cells and do a paper combine to get them back together or 2. leave the swarm cells and put the swarm on top with a double excluder and top and bottom entrances.
I'd like to keep the hive strong for the spring flow and I wouldn't mind requeening with the queen they produce if she looks good. I'd appreciate any opinions or other suggestions.
