This is my first year beekeeping, I hived a package May 1st here. They were just booming in their hive so I added another hive and performed a split to prevent swarming. I spaced both hives to keep the brood nest open, the honey stores aren't full in either but the original hive keeps swarming over and over! This morning I saw swarm number three leaving to a nearby tree and I didn't even think they had a queen to leave with. My concern is that they've left the hive finally queenless, and they are starting to fill the brood nest with honey. Would they do that?
Also is there a way to end swarmy behavior? I just can't figure out why they keep swarming because there aren't many bees left and there is definitely plenty of space!
Thank you so much in advance!
