Re: Hive swarmed
This is like a book that is missing the last chapter.
Not knowing the queen status (queen cells, virgin, missing queen and no viable eggs) Could be several possibilities. My hunch would be swarm for lack of room and remaining bees did not have enough manpower to contain the wax moth intrusion, got fed up and absconded.
Other questions may be, "other hives nearby and has their numbers increased from taking in bees? Wax moths a problem in other hives? Dead bees in or around hive in large numbers? A lot can happen in a hive in 3-4 weeks, let alone one that is honey bound.
