Did a cutout today on a colony of gentle, law-abiding bees in a hollow log. Got very lucky and found and caged the queen in a clip, so the battle is won for hiving.

But one comb has 3 capped swarm cells, so would like to set up some mating nucs. Advice on what to build, # of combs of brood and honey to include, links to instructions on how to do it, volunteers to come to Texas and show me how, etc. would be appreciated
