Video of swarm scouting behavior

You can see the swarm and watch scouts orienting and visiting two potential locations. See if you can guess which swarm trap they move into.

Nice video Danger!  Thanks for sharing.

Very fun I imagine to watch your bees swarm/abscond then take up residence in one of your traps.
Keep us posted on progress with this hive!

look in trap, find the queen, clip her and dump them back in your hive. she might leave a coupla more times , just pick her up and put her back in.
put a folower board after about 6-7 frames

Thanks for the kind words folks! It's nice to have a little feedback. I left them in there for a while. Mostly because I wanted to build a nice hive for them. Will post video of the cutout shortly.
