My hive just swarmed yesterday afternoon. They picked a strange day for swarming. It was very cloudy and it was raining slightly. It was a very impressing sight tough! All the bees and that loud humming! They clustered in a apple tree just next to the hive so I was able recover the swarm.
My question now is do I reduce my hive to one brood box again and use the frames I had in the second brood box for my new colony? Hope you understand what I mean!
