I'm a newbee that feels like I finally got a sign that I should start beekeeping. I have been fascinated with bees for a while and my neighbor (who is also a newbee) and I are trying to get things started together.
My neighbor already has a cleaned out hive, and I believe a swarm just started a new colony in my barn (this was the sign). I would love to get them to transfer to a new hive, and I have been watching lots of videos and reading lots of articles. But my question is, if this is a new swarm (which likely is from neighbors down the street) and I want to transfer them to a new hive, should I go ahead and try to transfer them sooner rather than later, or should I give it some time for them to start building some combs and get some larve going before we try to transfer them?
Any help is greatly appreciated. Will also welcome youtube links and criticism.
