Ok, so I thought the transfer went really well yesterday. The bees had drawn two really nice straight combs, about hand length and hand width at it's widest, classic miniature KTBH trapezoid. For only 5 days work, I was amazed at the progress. It appeared all the bees seemed to find their way to the main hive after the transfer before dark. I went to bed about as happy as a new beek could be.
Today was a different, confusing matter. Bees seemed frantic, hovering around outside of the entrance this morning. Some seemed to be going about their work, others just buzzed around seeming confused. As the day progressed, I noticed that there were a TON of bees moving in and out of another swarm trap I'd placed not far from the hive the captured swarm is housed. While the scene at the swarm trap seemed chaotic, I noticed the hive had settled down a bit, looking more like a hive should, flying in and out in normal hive behavior. There was only the occasional bee carrying pollen back to the hive though, which concerned me. There are really two scenarios that I can see: the bees are about to abscond to the swarm trap OR I am about to capture a different swarm. I'd say the activity at both were equal, only the hive much calmer than the trap. Any ideas? I guess worse case scenario, I catch my own bees (again) and try to re-hive after a little more time.
