I'm in a suburban environment and I basically only have the room and the money for a single box. It'll be a langstroth, which indicates its price. I realize a colony doubles it population each year, but that brings up an issue:
1) How do I contain these newly born bees and prevent them from swarming without expanding the box, or buying another?
2) In the case that they do swarm, how do I contain them and keep them without buying or expanding?
