First year with bees. I caught and placed a swarm on October 22' I know it was late in the year , but figured if they were not going to make ,why not in my backyard? I place one frame of honey and fed them 2 to 1 sugar for 6 days. I left them alone and today I finally looked at the girls. I found bees everywhere, inside telescoping cover, both side of inner cover and frame tops were covered. I found 9 3/4 frames drawn and covered with bees. 2 3/4 frames of honey / pollen remain 7 brood,capped and uncapped. Should I give them a super ? Or can I order a queen and attempt a split. I found no swarm cells, but a whole bunch of drone cells. Is it okay to remove entrance reducer ? Weather here mid 40's at night.
The swarm when placed was about the size of 1 1/2 softballs. Thanks in advance for your time.
