Well I got a very big surprise today.
This last Tuesday, I cleaned out a dead hive and just left the frames in the super. This morning I visited my 2 other hives and discovered a swarm had moved into the empty super.
A very large swarm, and they filled up many frames with open honey. Probably regurgitated.
They did not come from my 2 hives as I inspected them both today and did not find any queen cells, and I still have very large populations of bees in these 2 hives and open larvae and some eggs.
So this was a free swarm and I am very happy, since I just lost the other hive.
I have heard of this happening to other beeks, and so glad I got to experience this happy event.
So JP and Schawee, while you are busting your a___, catching swarms, I just sit around and do nothing and they come to me.
