First swarm! 5/7/10 17:00 zip 45840 (NW OH), a + 5 pounder. On a small cherry tree start (about 2' tall) and about 12' from the hive. This swarm came from a hived swarm last year. My neighbor wanted bees, so i gave him a hived swarm last year. Obviously they wintered very well! Odd or funny thing is that I had a bait hive about 10/12 yards away with old comb & LGO; they're in it now:D
So what next?

Feed them 1:1 syrup if you have foundation/foundationless frames on them.
