I helped an elderly friend hive a swarm today. He only had drawn foundation so the bees went into a nuc with a frame of honey, a frame of open/sealed brood and 3 drawn frames. I got to wondering if having nowhere for a swarm to build wax could make them feel like their new cavity is too small and cause them to swarm out very quickly.
I've always placed some plain foundation in my hived swarms but I did this mainly because I like using their wax building ability to my advantage. That said I've still had my share of swarms take off on me.
