Normally after the the mother queen swarms, 7-10 days you start to hear croaking. If there are to be multiple after swarms, you'll hear piping as well as each virgin tries to gather a following. Quincy Moses explained this process in a book he wrote in the second half of the 1800's. In his day this was the primary way of making increases. Seems when ever science discovered something, the old timers had already figured out ☺.
