Was doing inspections today when my wife called and said there was swarming going on in the backyard. Nothing I could do till I was finished work. By the time I got home there were 2 separate swarms in our grape bush. I caught them both (found the queen in each), and put them in nucs because they were not overly huge. This was the second day this has happened, and they seem to all be coming from the nucs I had made up that were raising their own queens after rejecting the expensive ones. :roll: I always thought the first one out does in the rest (as I went through to see which nuc one of them came from, I actually watched one doing in one of her sisters through the side of a cell) or at least they duke it out till one remains. It seems as if mine all decide to run instead of fight and bees go with them. What's up with that? What I did was to go through as many nucs as I had time, and started corralling the virgins and leaving a cell to try and head this off. I now have 5 virgins sitting in a shoebox on the dining room table.
