I have a nuc ordered, but at the advice of many here I built some nucs and set them out as swarm traps.
I actually got to watch a swarm land on my trap today. It was very cool to see!
They covered the face of it, and bearded underneath. For quite awhile I watched them pouring into the entrance.
Now several hours later, there are bees flying in and out, but there are also a bunch of bees bearded still that aren't going in.
It is a 5 frame nuc box with 2 foundationless frames. Could the box be too small for them all to get in it? Should I just leave them alone for a few days or should I try to go ahead and move them to my hive?
