    Re: First swarm capture question.......

    I thought about that. I have a top feeder that I will switch too. I just wanted to put something in there for the time being. Do you think it's okay to keep the new swarm so close to the other hives?

    Re: First swarm capture question.......

    How quickly will the swarm move to another location if they decide to leave? I caught this swarm within a couple hours of swarming from the main hive.
