So i got out today to check the swarm traps and one of them has a whole bunch of bees going into it. I watched for about 5-10mins and the bees seem to stay in there for several mins before leaving, then more bees ( maybe same ones i dunno) return and go into the trap.
Im assuming this is all encouraging news since there is nothing to rob out in there. Its a 10 frame deep single hive with lemongrass oil bait. Has 3 old brood frames and a few empty frames with starter strips.
What do i expect now? If they choose to move in when does that happen? how many days is the norm to check out the new digs?
