July I am seeing several swarms the size of a baseball with nice size queens. So is a just a July swarms or queen mating flight?

Typical after-swarms.

They do swarm that small with a mated queen sometimes. I caught a swarm that size with my marked and mated queen mid to late October last year. The hive was booming, but hardly any went with the swarm. The rest stayed and cranked out the honey this year.
