I also got a swarm yesterday. I t was very small. anyway the price is right rite. they were about the size of a softball, this is my first one. they must be swarming atound here. my friends hive swarmed and she got them before they left the area, put them in a hive but they absconded ther next day. she also hived a swarm last week and it absconded too. Mine is staying though but I had to aput a smaller entrance on my nuc that I just queened , cause the swarm bees were robbing them blind this morning. I waited till nightfall almost then I opened the box I ahad them in and sprayed them with sugar syrup so they couldnt go anywhere for a while.

I have read that you need to put a queen excluder under the hive to block the queen from going out the entrance.

I guess since swarms don't have any surplus of supplies they are going to go after all they can get.
