Honey Harvest & Possible Swarm

402 4
We got our first honey yesterday off of a couple of hives. We also put apigar mite treatment in afterwards. The bees now act like they want to swarm. For two days now they cover the face of hive and form a small beard underneath. Could it be from lack of space now that the honey supers are gone? There were two on this hive. Thanks for any comments and I am in WV.
