A friend of mine told me about a swarm in front of his house. So I caught a pretty big swarm yesterday and I tossed them in a deep. We are close to the fall flow and the pollen has started. so is a swarm this late normal or is this one of those swarms that I should have left fly? I did find two hive beetles on the swarm box and I did capture the queen.
I plan to keep her in the queen trap for 48 hours before releasing her inside the box. Does that sound good?
