Ah crap! Caught three swarms today. Simple very low hanging swarms.
One queen was crushed. She crawled underneath the box bottom flaps and was crushed!!!
Never thought of it but in the future I'm taping those down! ARGH!  Cry

combine that swarm with one of the others and you'll have a nice, strong, hive.

.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

I gave them three frames of eggs/larvae. Hopefully they can make an emergency queen.
If I didn't break 2 out of 3 capped queen cells during today's removal I could have put one in there! Ugh
