I have a swarm in a squirrel box that I got 2 months ago. It built up real fast so I left it in there. I picked it up last weekend and they have put on a lot of weight. At has more bees flying than all of the other hives. At the club meeting on Monday our local inspector stressed that we need to be feeding our bees here in north FL to have them ready for our first flow that starts right after the equinox in December. My question is, when should I move this swarm into a L box? It is a strong hive and I don't want to lose it.
JP & Schawee, your weather is similar to N FL, what do you think?
