hived a swarm thurs in my TBH. all going well. watching them today saw 3 very large bees(drone?) come out. do swarms take drones with them also? I also noticed a baseball sized (maybe a bit smaller) balled up in a outside corner of the hive. I know they beard when they get hot but these where in a cluster? I have also opened up some more ventilation for them

Drones will visit many hive in the area, this time of year the guards will let them pass.
