Hi, scouts checking out one of my traps ( a used deep single). About 25 scouts spent the night in it. Can't locate the swarm despite looking. Today temp now 68 this AM falling to 60 by evening. Up to an inch of rain. Low 45 tonight. Highs low to mid 60's next 2-3 days. Will an exposed swarm survive that? Thanks

Yes, they will survive just fine.

I get that many checking out the equipment sitting in the back of my truck. Still no swarms have ended up in it (that I didn't put there in a box...).

Thanks for the info. Maybe they haven't swarmed yet and are just scouting. About 20 scouts still clustered in the box. Hopefully they return to the hive/swarm tomorrow and tell them how nice a place it is!!
