if you don't have eggs in another 10 days, you didn't get her, or something happened to her. give them a frame of eggs if you can, and see what they do with it.

they have comb built on over 3/4 of the bars. when I caught the swarm I believe I missed the queen the first time. they all went back to the bush. second attempt they stayed in the hive and the fliers eventually went also.
