I'm a first time beek. A nuc, that I transferred on May 19, swarmed on me today. I had added a second deep two weeks ago.
Luckily I was home today. I saw the whole thing happen. They settled on a small tree, about 20 feet away and 5 feet off the ground. I retrieved them back into their original nuc box. I added 3 frames with new foundation 1 I pulled from their hive that they had started to draw comb on.
A couple of questions.
Should I have done anything differently?
Can I bring the nuc box back into my bee yard (it's currently still under the tree)?
Any other suggestions?
Thank you in advance.
