If you bait a sharp trap and you have alot of bees come check it out. Will they come and leave or do they continue to hang around. I reapplied swarm commander on Monday and Wednesday I had about 50 bees checking it out. On Thursday i had more checking it out but not much of anything today. Is this normal, I dont know if I need to reapply or just wait it out.

I don't think you need to apply swarm commander anywhere near that often. I think once every few weeks is plenty. To much may actually drive a swarm off.
