Iíve very new to beekeeping this is my first year to do it. Iíve done a couple of cutouts but didnít have luck getting the queen. I left some old comb in my hive box out in the yard. Iíve been feeding the local bees first it was the old comb and some honey now Iíve got pollen patties out. Iíve been watching them come and every once in a while checking out the hive but finally a swarm showed up. They are solid on about three frames.
Question. Will it spook them off if I get in there and move the frames around? I have a ten frame hive and only have six frames in it I need to put the rest in but Iím worried to mess with them this early may cause them to leave.
