    Default Two swarms in one location.

    I witnessed one of my hives swarm. I watched them collect in a pine tree to high to retrieve. Then about 15 minutes later, the hive next to the original hive swarmed and collected in the same location resulting in a very large swarm. Has anyone else ever seen this? Will the swarm become one and kill one of the queens? Or maybe leave at two different times? I just wish it was not to high to obtain. I have multiple nucs in the area with lemon grass oil in it. They never seem to like my swarm lures.

    As long as the queens don't find each other they will not rip each other apart.
    Schawee (on youtube) found five queens in one swarm.
