My very strong hive swarmed twice in the past 2 days. Today while doing yard work i saw a queen on a blackberry leaf with several other bees around her. Is this a new queen out for a mating flight ? This was about 10 feet from the hive that swarmed. It looked like a mini ball of bees, maybe 6 or 7 and a Queen.

I added a hogg halfcomb box but i guess i was too late and they had allready planed on swarming. Even after the swarm the hive is still very strong but i don't think i'll get any excess honey from this hive. I was a little laid back with this hive and did not do any inspections recently so its probably my own fault. The good thing is I was able to capture the swarm and so now I have another hive started. Gotta love the free Bees.
