i believe iv got some swarm cells in my lower deep on the bottom of a few frames.

How can i deal with this if i dont want to do a split? I have been adding boxes as needed tho i guess that wasn't enough

unless you split, you dont stand a chance. even if you split, once they finish multiple swarm cells, the success rate for me is low. your odds are better setting up some swarm traps. good luck,mike
