This is the largest of the three swarms I boxed over the weekend. This one took me three tries in two days! Finally I made a scoop from a gallon size syrup bottle I had laying around and scooped nearly the entire bunch and finally housed the queen. Too big to fit in a single deep.

So, what are the chances that if you dumped that swarm onto a sheet that there would be multiple queens in it?

Greater than zero.
Regardless - what can you do about it?
Nothing.

I wondered that as well, but once they were all in the box and back in my apiary, i figure let them fight it out. They are already loading up frames.
