Had a swarm on april 19. Caught them and put them in a hive. I put the box back on the row pretty close to the hive they come from. Checked them 2 days later and swarm appeared to be much smaller than when first hived. The queen is in the hive but not yet laying as of today. I have had them closed down to nuc size and started feeding them the last week and a half. They did have to draw comb from the foundation. How long should it take before the queen starts to lay again. At least 3 frames have been pulled and they are storing the sugar water I have been feeding them. Thanks for any advice.
