Finally checked out my beeyard today. Only 5 hives and it took me 2 hours! Caught another swarm last night in Beaufort. Big one. About the size of 2 basketballs. They were on an Indian Hawthorne in front of the Administration Building. Had a hard time, but was finally able to finagle a bucket under the swarm and bop most of them into the bucket which I then dumped in a box. I was lucky enough to get the queen on first try, and they I just sat there and waited for the rest of them to walk in, I closed them up and brought them home. I left the entrance blocked until this morning. Then I went into my other 4 hives. As you know, I've had a lot of swarms, so I didn't know what to expect. One hive had lots of swarm cells, another had one supercedure cell. None of them had any brood at all. None! All of these hives have at least 3 boxes and all the boxes are jam packed with bees; only a few drones in each. My only guess is that they all swarmed at one time or another and that I'm working on newly hatched virgin queens who haven't started laying yet. Isn't it kind of nuts, though that not one of four have any brood? They're producing white wax and honey like crazy and I robbed 4 boxes of beautiful capped honey while I was in there. What are your thoughts?
