    Question Swarm Box as Cell Finisher?

    I read in both Lary Connor and Marla Spivak books that the cells should only remain in a swarm box for 24-36 hours. They should then be moved to a finisher. I was wondering why the swarm box would not make a satisfactory finisher since is is so full of nurse bees?

    It works perfectly as a finisher. Make sure they have plenty of honey and pollen; scratch open some honey if you're not feeding.
