Hi Ladies and Gentlemans I am a newbie here soon to become a hobbies beekeeper! I know we are not in swarming season but I would like to let you know that abouth eight days ago I installed a bee trap in one of my palm trees, the reason why I did installed the trap is because I noticed there were some bees collecting some nectar from my palm tree, so it occurred to me that I could install a trap, so I went to South Florida bee supplies and got me a trap with the lemongrass kit for $15, to give it a try, to make a long story it seems that some bees are already moved in, part of the incentive to make them move in was that I am feeding 2 to 1 syrup! so they have a nice home with syrup available for them! can someone tells me what happened here since we are not in swarming and still I believe I cut some bees! how long should I wait so I could transfer to a Nuc hive? I know it's too soon to move them and relocate them from my front yard to my backyard ! any inputs would be appreciate it. I've been readings lots of books for backyard beekeeping, and currently have the book beekeeper for Dummies! good evening!
