Picked up a really small swarm last night. Called a couple of friends to see if they needed a queen, but they did not. Swarm was smaller than a soft ball. This AM my grand-daughter & I made up a nuc with them. ( 2 frames honey, 2 frames brood with nurse bees & 1 frame drawn comb. (See the photo section) They were being robbed out this PM (No surprise) so installed a robber screen. It does seem to be working but this evening I'll move them a couple of hundred yds to be by themselves. They may not make it thru the winter but all I'll lose is a little time & some feed. :mrgreen:
