Yeah they taketh again. I just went to look at the hive this morning and there gone. They made about a pinky size section of comb and that's it.
I just don't understand what I'm doing wrong. I've lost survivor bees, a package, and now a swarm. I have a feeling when I check the bee yard the other survivor bees will be gone to.
I've seen the tip of putting a frame of brood to keep them stay but I'm starting out. I don't have those resources. I feed them, I didn't bother them, I reduced the entrance,I put a solid bottom on my hive.
I've got one more package coming I'm going to put them in a Lang. If that doesn't work I'm going to sell what I got on eBay and give up.
