No other beeks or ferals near you?
one guy about a mile away has one hive but thats all i know of
possibly virgin swarms??
I've had a hive throw two strong swarms once, but I'm not sure just how many afterswarms a hive could throw. You have several hives? Is it possible your swarms came from more than one hive?
i guess it could have, but i check my hives at least one a week
and i havn't noticed any loss of bees at any time.

Mick, can i bring my swarm trap down there? I need MORE BEES...LOL
I've already had 3 swarms from one of our strongest Warre hives. I'm not complaining!

so i guess you answered my question,a hive can swarm several times.
