I have caught a late season swarm in my trap that was left up in case one of my new two hives swarmed. This is an unrelated swarm as both hives never missed a beat and are still going strong. The problem is that do not currently have any additional equipment or funds to get any more boxes. The trap is an 8 frame deep box and it was a good size swarm for so late in the season.
Any reason I shouldn't just leave the new swarm in this swarm trap box over winter? Just in case I loose one of the other hives this winter or worst case I am able to secure more equipment in the off season to re-hive it in the spring?
