Will my swarm reswarm?


Recommended Posts

Yesterday I caught my hive swarming.. I followed them to next door neighbours where I recaptured them. I rehoused them to a different part of our section... Do they ever reswarm? .. They seem to be flying around aimlessly.. Just as they did before their first swarm.. Although not nearly as many.. I gave them 9 waxed frames plus one frame full of capped honey.. Any comments please...

They won't actually need that capped honey, they'll already be full to the gills with honey for comb building. Just relax and give them a few days to settle down. 

We haven't had any reswarm yet. I have noticed they spend a few days flying around. Getting use to their new home I guess. We have caught 2 swarms this year and both have stayed put. I think if you get them before the scouts have found a good home they will stay. The more experienced will soon put us right
