    Default Best way to prevent swarms

    I am a Backyard beekeeper with 4 hives ,Last year I had at least 6 swarms from my hives .What is the best way to attemp to control this .I have read about re-Queening as a first season Queen is less likely to swarm.Any other advice would be much appreciated.
