Re: Educate me on swarms
Swarm information for you:
Generally, a swarm would have a queen already. The swarming bees are planning to establish a new colony, and need a queen with them to do so.
Swarms looking for a new home may temporarily cluster in an exposed location while their scouts check out possible new homes. At that point, the swarm can often be shaken or brushed into a box or bucket, then transferred to a hive body.
