I had a hive swarm yesterday and return to the hive, so I split it. This morning most of them must have returned to the parent hive and they swarmed this evening only to return again! What can I do with them in the morning? I can move them if necessary. Thanks
Re: swarm advice
moved old hive about 5 feet to the side of old location.set up new hive as a split.brood of al
l ages with some nurse bees.in a few days,move old hive in new location about 5 feet on the OTHER side of new hive in original hive location. wait about 2 weeks.move old hive (the one being moved around) BACK to other side of original hive position... you guessed it 5 feet.
