It's very late in the season to start a new colony, for me anyway, but I had the opportunity to try my first trap out yesterday and couldn't pass it up. I already have four hives all from swarms and they are not as far along at this time of the season as one would hope. I took a frame of brood from one of the strongest hives and put it in a nuke box and set it as the trap. Here is my question. Once I have a good amount of bees in the trap, the idea is that they will start feeding/nursing the brood and maybe create a queen, correct? Should I let them do that, or place all those bees that I catch back in the hive where I got the frame of brood in the first place to strengthen the original hive? Also, I'm guessing that I will have to put them in another deep on top of that original hive with newspaper between to let them get used to each other, right? After initial observation at the trap out site, it didn't seem that the colony in the wall was all that strong, but I will have to see. They have gone through hell with the owners trying to kill them, so hopefully, I can save them or at least some.
