Welcome to Beesource!

Which came first, the chicken or the egg? :scratch: :lookout::D

One way to look at your situation is that a colony of bees is a superorganism. That is, forget that there are individual bees and think of the colony as a living animal. Once an animal has adequate food, what is the next thing it wants to do?

The answer would be ... uhhh:rolleyes: ... reproduce. :thumbsup::thumbsup:

Swarming is the way a colony reproduces itself. That is always the goal of the colony.
