I was able to get this swarm into my hive. I did put a reducer on it but was wondering how long to keep it on and any other tips to keep it safe.

feed them lots of sugar water inside the hive..this will prevent robbing and give them a good reason to stay around...keep entrance reducer on till they get established and the numbers grow, in a few weeks check for new brood to make sure the queen survived...
