I opened the dual boxes I put the basketball sized swarm in on the night of the hailstorm March 23rd. Bottom one they lucked out and had comb, but they didn't fit so top one was empty medium frames, and yes I did feed. But I think the bees were the wrong age and I didn't feed often enough. Tuesday a swarm went up in a tree, then the bees appeared to return to the box. Had to work long day Wednesday and it rained all day Yesterday. So today I located every empty medium frame I had (there were 8), and went out to see if they were over crowded as there was so much bearding on the box. And between the sticky board and the screened bottom board. Suited up and grabbed a smoker after I staged the empty box out in the apiary. Lid off, guess what, no comb drawn in the top box at all. Not that many bees up there, for all the back of the box and the sbb were covered with bees. Pulled the top box off and opened the bottom. first 2 frames were empty, just to make room. Bee bread, pollen nectar, 6th frame has a capped queen cell. 7th frame doublesided full of worker brood (future wax workers of america), 8th frame doublesided full of worker brood, except for an almost capped queen cell. and the 9th as well, plus a couple of queen cups on 9 that weren't full or capped.. 10th really sloppy honey comb in a foundationless deep frame with no starter strip. so. all the bees under the box and on the back had to be the swarm with the old queen. Except I never did find the old queen. But I stuck a nuc with a screwed on bottom board (just a piece of plywood) and a hole drilled in front with both screen and tin can lid available, under the hive and brushed the bottom board bees in. Took a dust pan out and swept more in. Shoved a screen in the front opening put a screened feeder lid on top and I'm going to take them some syrup. I am not sure whether to grab a queen cell from the mother hive and add to the nuc, or not. I have queens coming in Tuesday. I did open the front door on the main hive to be sure the new queen can exit to go on her mating flight, don't know how the old queen got out that 2 bee opening, and I am not at all sure if she is in the nuc, but with the screened front door I figure the bees will let me know. They have 4 empty frames and one with comb and some honey that has been previously frozen, While I go to work tomorrow and decide. And my little doublestacked nuc swarm from a month ago is queenless too, but they are pulling in lots of nice honey, They get a queen for sure. They are too small to have a front door for mating.
