My year old hive swarmed 3 days ago. Half left, half stayed I caught and rehived. Today the same year old hive swarmed again. Half left, half stayed. I am not expericenced enough to know if this is ok. Is there something wrong with my hive configuration? I have 2 deeps and 2 supers on the year old hive.

thanks!
Duane and Becky

There is a new queen developing with the group that stayed. You might do better catching the swarm and moving to a new hive, as they don't like 2 queens per hive.

(although one of mine had 2 queens one year, eventually one queen got booted out, explaining a few things when I found her a couple of days in a row in the same spot)
