Checked this week and have a nicely laying queen. Moved frames around to allow them some room.

Glad to read that this colony was able to successfully re-queen. Hopefully these were some genetics you were looking to propagate such that the bees did you a favor by swarming.

Well, I tried to set them up for honey production with the intent to split them later for gaining hive count. Wife and Dad want some honey. They did not get much last year with my attempts to grow hive count. The colony is indeed one that I have pulled a round or two of queens from each year. Since I don't have much trouble grafting, I would prefer to make my own queens, but I will dance with the one that I brung so to speak.
