    Default Newbe question about swarms

    Once you catch, relocate and install a swarm into a new hive, do you feed? (I'm brand new at this.) I see lots of articles and you tubes on swarm trapping but nothing after they are caught. Any advice is helpful. Thanks.

    I usually place a frame of open brood and honey in with them. If you don't have any resources, I would feed them temporarily.

    during an earlier flow I would steal a frame of honey from another hive and give it to the swarm.....This late I would feed heavily.
