Re: Please Post your Swarm Dates?
Considered that also. Even asked the beekeeper if had open queen cells in the hive that swarmed. He did not know. I put the nuc out on the hive stand and opened it up this afternoon. Bees making orentation flights and the queen is still in the clip. Tomorrow I am putting these bees in a 10 frame and will look for another queen before marking and releasing this one. Color will depend on what I find. Mutiple queens means Blue dots, single queen means a Green one.
Thankfully, the bees are smarter than I am. They are doing well, in spite of my efforts to help them.
