Well, they found me. I was changing out the entrance feeder on top of the inner cover on the swarm hive box and when I picked it up, there were five or six black bugs crawling around under the feeder. I guess SHBs are like porn, you know it when you see it. I knew it was a matter of time, and I bought some traps to put in the hives, and I was planning on putting them in tomorrow. I guess it's coincidence that I saw them today. It's been a couple of weeks since I've looked in my big hive. I'm kind of scared to look in there now. I may have 30 frames of slime. I sure hope not. Here's my questions. The swarm is in a 8-frame box with bare frames. There is no comb and no honey (except what they might have drawn out since Friday). What is in that hive that would attract the SHB? Do they go by smell? Do you think it might be the HBH that I put in the syrup? I don't think syrup has a smell. Certainly, there wasn't SHB that rode along with the swarm, was there? As much as I understand bees hate SHB, surely they wouldn't bring them along with the swarm. I have the box in full sun with an entrance reducer. I pulled it out just a tad to increase the entrance from the smallest opening because it was getting crowded. Should I push it back so that only the small opening is operational? Sorry about rambling, but I hope you can remember the first time you saw a SHB. I'm ready to go do defcon 4 and go ballistic. Any thoughts will be greatly appreciated.
