I did a trapout on Sunday and got a couple of frames of bees and I was just going to combine them with one of my hives. I have another trapout that just came up and it looks like it could be a bigger catch.

Question; Could I use the same hive (with bees) that I have the 2 frames of bees and place it for this trapout? I beleive the ones I have in the hive are queenless and I probably won't get a queen with this one either. In other words would the new bees be more likely to hive themselves with some bees already there.
