I have a swarm trap sitting on the back deck about 75 yards from a couple of hives. It's a 5 frame nuc, baited. Today the wife calls me at work and says 50 or so bees were checking out the trap, flying all around it, in and out, landing on the sides and doing some waggle dancing. By the time I got home at 7pm there were just a few bees (3 or 4) still checking out the trap. What were they doing? There is a frame of drawn comb inside, LGO and swarm lure from Brushy Mnt. and that's it. I also had 4 frames of foundation in there but had to use them in another hive and haven't built any more frames to replace them. The comb is empty, no stores or pollen (it actually came from a split that I let starve last fall..:doh: ) I don't think they were foragers. Could they be swarm scouts?
