I didn't get in there soon enough it appears! Last year I started this hobby with a Top Bar beehive thinking it would be easier. Now I am working on getting the bees in to a real hive. I have had very few problems until this spring. I am going to list a chain of events and get your advice how to manage the situation. SAT, MAY 26 I see a cloud of bees land on a tree near the hive. I was unable to catch them before my precious bees went airborne and I watched the cloud disappear in to the sunset. I purchased a couple deep hive boxes with frames of drawn comb on Monday with the intent of trying to move bees out of the top bar in to the langstroth. FRI, JUN 1 Before I could get a chance to work the hive another swarm landed high in a tree. I wasn't letting this one get away. I left work and climbed the tree and shook the bees in to a sack. I emptied the sack in to one of my deep boxes. When done there was still a cluster of bees on the tree, but I had to get back to work. Just before I got home the bees on the tree went airborne and reentered the parent hive. All the bees I put in the deep hive box also entered the parent hive. I came home and inspected my hive. There are capped queen cells, I did not see any open ones, but I may have missed them. I'm still kind of new at this. Bee Transfer To get bees in the langstroth I spaced some bars wide enough for bees to get out the top of the top bar and placed a deep box with frames of comb right on top. My Questions 1.Will the new space of the Langstroth prevent additional swarming? 2.Should I cull the queen cells(I do not know if I have a queen now, I see no eggs or larvae) 3.Should I attempt a split? I can modify my top bars to slip in to a langstroth.
