As I understand it: Swarm cells occur as normal, then the swarm issues, and the queen tries to follow. She will end up on the ground, and may not get back into the hive. The swarm returns to the hive. Then about a week or so later the swarm leaves with a new virgin. Of course, during this time there is plenty of opportunity for you to intervene.
