1 week ago as I was working one of my hives I found 7 queen cells 3 on one frame and 4 on another, so I took the queen 2 frames of bees, brood, eggs and 3 frames of stores and moved it t a friends farm, went last evening and pick them up to bring back home, had to wait till 8:30 for all the field bees to get back, this morning moved the frames to a hive body, saw the queen, some capped brood, did not see eggs or young larva, now today there are no bees out working, the other hives are bring back loads of some bright yellow pollen I kinda remember reading that before a swarm the field bees stop working, any one know for sure or any ideas. ( the swarm cells were cut out except 2 cells to a frame, left one frame in original hive and the other went into a nuc, waiting till next weekend to check on them thanks
