Hey...i'm new to the forum...my granddad was a bee keeper, i was around it some but dont know a whole lot, but have always been interested in it. I now have a swarm of wild honey bees, which moved into an empted oak wooden barrell...i removed the top and they seem to be thriving.
They have been in there about two months now and have a good bit of comb. My question is, should attempt to move them into a standard bee hive? I do have a brood box, and super, and of course vail and smoker too.
