Hi. New to the forum and beekeeping. Thank you in advance for any help! We lost our hive and had an infestation of larvae. We saw hive beetles running a muck prior. We took out the infested frames, looked over the other frames and cleaned up the box. Much discussion and no action, a few weeks had passed before we notice our dead hive had a flurry of activity. Now we have a mess because a swarm has moved in (but very excited they have) and built a large blob of comb on the hive lid where the four frames were missing. Any advice as to how to proceed. We think it has been at least two weeks of activity in the hive.
