Caught my first swarm today. as i was leaving work i noticed a swarm on a tree, after getting my stuff headed back to the site and they was still there. Maintenance had said you can have the bee's just dont damage the tree's. Not sure if i got the queen , so not to sure how to proceeded. i was thinking of either putting a frame of brood in from another hive or combining them with one of my other hives. if i combine i was thinking of putting a queen excluder between the two boxes and a sheet of news paper and make a top entrance. What do you guys think ?
I think I would try and find the queen. With your idea you could wind up with a two queen hive that will build major numbers. I just don't like excluders, an includer in your case.
