This is quite odd.
So, there were a few swarm cells that I found a few weeks ago that were on the bottom of a frame. I am a newbeekeeper and decided that I should leave them as they were already capped and I'm really just interested in how the hive works.
It seems as though the queens hatched, and I am pretty sure there were two or three queens walking around near the hive. There are bees buzzing about a bit more that usual, but they do not seem like they are in swarm mode. The queens are not fighting each other. Should I capture the queens and give them to local beekeepers I know?
What might be going on? Can I open the hive and look around or would this be a bad time?
Any information or help would be very appreciated!
