I will recap on the origin of the hive. It came as a swarm out of the wild. Took up in an empty stack that I had not cleaned up. Two medium supers on bottom with two deeps on top. The swarm to the top deeps and entered via knot holes in the rear.
Now, they have been coming out every afternoon for about 3 weeks when weather permits.I did add another medium to the top. They cluster and cover all 5 boxes for 2 or 3 hours. I took it as orientation flights at first. I have never noticed these flights going on this big every day.
I have placed a ready deep with a medium next to it in case they do swarm, hoping they will take it. I haven't noticed any scout bees checking out my other boxes like they have done in the past.
What say ye?
