I hived a feral swarm Thursday morning. Before i put them in the hive, I put a hive top feeder in place, before dumping them in. The brood box was put upon a queen excluder to keep her in the brood box. I took a peak today, and they were all bunched up on the telescoping hive. I dropped the hive cover down, before putting the top cover back on, to shake them into the frames. How long before they give up the swarm instinct, and start working the frames? I am going after another swarm Sat.morning. I was planning on commbining the two. It will be difficult, if there still bunched up. I guess i could just atart another hive box.
