My family is anticipating our first 3 packages of bees in a couple weeks. We're in a small town with no other beekeepers to my knowledge, so my husband built an extra hive so we'd have one in case we had the opportunity to catch a swarm in the future. Turns out, we got THREE calls in a week's time--before the arrival of our packages. We caught and kept one small swarm, couldn't get a BIG swarm out of a storm drain in town, and caught a beautiful basketball size swarm from someone's yard. Brought the basketball swarm home, put in the hive and felt good about beginning beekeeping!! The next day, they were all (but about 50) GONE. Any ideas on why? We've read everything we can get our hands on for the past few months (my husband a lot longer than that), watched youtube videos, and learned all we can. I can't find anyone addressing our particular problem.
