captured a large swarm yesterday, only i was afraid i might have killed the queen in the process of digging nest out of cavity,went to take the advice of helpful mentor,by adding frame of brood with eggs to see if they would start any queen cells, when i got down there they had already skidaddled on me.. found them 3/4 mile down the road in cavity of large cottonwood tree. my plan is to take a deep, set it up higher up on same fallen trunk,then possibly drop a couple beequick soaked cotton balls in and see what happens.. any other suggestions???
