Not trying to sound callous, but I would just let the bees figure it out. I had a week of after swarms this year, but they were probably 10 times or better in size. I ended up with a 50/50 retention rate, and probably lost 10 pounds for the extra time I spent in my bee suit to hive them (and I do NOT need to lose any weight!). Then, I had the extra work of fixing the frames from the wax moths. They move in FAST! I may get blasted for my opinion, but sometimes, the bees have to figure it out for themselves. JMO!!! So, what have you been doing?
