I have an empty nuc in a tree that's baited with pheromone. This week one of my hives swarmed and they happily went to the baited nuc. 30 feet away I noticed about 50 bees clustered on a rock. I took a closer look at the cluster on the rock, and I noticed the queen bee. I've had swarms to baited nucs before, and I'm yet to get one with a queen. It seems like a swarm can ignore their own queen and go right to the pheromone bait instead. Comments please? By the way, queen and swarm were reunited and living in a nuc.
