    Default Getting Ready to Swarm?

    We caught a swarm yesterday and were out checking on it when we noticed another one of of hives had large amounts of bees collecting on the ground before the hive. They are all alive and starting to kind of clump together.

    I apologize I have tried to attach a photo but it doesn't seem to be working

    We are really new to beekeeping and aren't sure if this is the beginning of swarm or something else. Any advice or ideas would be appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Nicole

    Looks like you have another swarm(s) to catch. You may have two queens in the mix.
