Had my first swarm on saturday.
I only have two hives.
One from a split from my only hive last year. I put a russian queen in it.
I bought a package of italians in April. And it turns out the new Italians swarmed not the Russians. They only went 15 feet away into a blue spruce about 6 feet off the ground. I cut the branch down, and put the branch in a deep, with 6 drawn frames. I took the branch out 24 hrs later, and they seem to be doing good. Workin the frames pretty good. Hopefully the original hive gets a mated queen.
