On Monday my hive swarmed, not sure how many bees i lost if any (i think they MAY have gone back into the hive, as upon opening it up, it was PACKED with bees still)......... On Wedensday there was what looked to be an after-swarm, much less bees involved maybe about the size of a softball.
I opened up the brood chamber and took a few frames of bees/honey/eggs/brood and did a small split (4 frames in all).
Last night i noticed lots of bees crawling around in the grass, seemingly unable to fly. They would get an inch or 2 in the air, fly for a very short distance and drop back down. I picked a few up and put them on the hive porch, but they would try to fly again, and end up in the grass.
Could i have a problem that i dont know what to look for? This hive was extremely strong, and looking inside still is, but between the swarming, and now the crawling bees, im concerned that there is a problem im not aware of.
