One of my swarm traps captured what I think is a small secondary swarm. It consists of maybe a fistful of bees and a queen that appears immature (smaller than a fully mature queen). It seems to be doing fine but I’m thinking of giving it a boost by adding bees from another hive.

I could add a full frame of bees/brood or just shake in a bunch of nurse bees. My only concern is adding too many bees that might kill the existing immature queen. Any thoughts? Thx
