Re: A swarm moved in. Now what?
For starters, congratulations on your first swarm capture. The next thing to do is nothing. They are already in a hive. Give the girls a chance to get settled. Look for normal activty within a few days. Pollen coming in, guard bees on duty, foraging flights, etc. You may have a virgin queen but my guees is you caught a primary swarm with a mated queen. So, give them two weeks, take a peek and look for eggs or larvae. If you see any, close it back up and give them another week or two before doing an inspection. If you do not see eggs at week two, close it up and look again in a week. If still no eggs, queen may have been intercepted (eaten by a bird). In that case, give the swarm a frame of brood and let them make another queen. I bring this up because it happened to me in my own backyard and I did not catch it in time.
Thankfully, the bees are smarter than I am. They are doing well, in spite of my efforts to help them.
