I noticed no one has mentioned an artificial swarm.
This is one of the basic swarm preventions going. You allow them to think they have swarmed but you have in fact still kept your bees.
I know some beekeepers in UK do this type of swarm prevention then they remove the old queen into a Nuc with brood, stores and bees and the remainder of bees get returned to the original colony so as not to loose the main bulk of bees for foraging.
Do you guys carry out anything simular?
Or what do you do to controll swarming?
