Caught a swarm on Monday, April 1 and hived it in a five-frame deep nuc with foundation only. It was a large swarm -- probably 5 lbs or better. Caught a second swarm from the same hive on Wednesday, April 2 and hived it in a ten-frame medium box with foundation only. It was about 2 or 3 lbs of bees. Thursday morning, both were present. Friday morning, both were present. Didn't check Saturday. Went by this afternoon and the five-frame nuc was packed with bees. All five frames were drawn out -- in only 6 days! Their new home is still being painted, so I added another five-frame deep box on top of it with foundation only. Walked ten feet over to check the other swarm, and the ten-frame medium box was empty except for a dozen or so bees. These appeared to be bees from the other hive that were robbing the nectar. This box had three partially drawn frames with nectar and pollen, but no eggs. I'm not surprised by no eggs because this was a third swarm from the original hive and the queen was likely not laying yet. I figure one of two things happened -- they absconded for some unknown reason, or I killed the queen. I give this second option because the swarm was on the trunk of a pear tree. I couldn't shake them off and I don't have a bee vac; so, I brushed them off with my hands into the box. I may have killed the queen, or at least maimed her. So, getting to the point . . . If I killed the queen, is it likely that the bees from this swarm moved into the five-frame nuc with the other swarm? It was a healthy swarm to begin with, but there just seemed to be a lot of bees in there today and they had made a lot of progress for only six days.
