Had the post office call and say "come pick up your bees"...which was odd since I hadn't ordered any. Turns out they had a swarm they wanted me to "pick up". Pretty dang small - maybe only a pound of two of bees.
Well 9 days later I finally ascertained I actually got the queen too. I looked on 3 separate occasions, but did not see her. I also found a brand new supercedure queen cell. I did not see any capped cells and they have only drawn out the entrance side half of about 3-4 frames.
They are drawing comb, taking sugar water, and bringing in pollen. I have the entrance stopped down to 3/8"x 3/8" to help stop any robbing (been a problem). I did not see any capped cells and they have only drawn out the entrance side half of about 3-4 frames (too few bees?).
What are these bees thinking?
