This hive started in April, only 2 months old and they seem to have swarmed. I have 2 deep boxes. As I was checking I didn’t notice a big difference in bee population, but I did see a new queen, as the one you see in the picture.
I then saw what looks like an open swarm cell.
I was working on this hive a week ago and I didn’t look deep enough to see the swarm cell. It must’ve happened very recently. I couldn’t see any swarms on any trees around my property, however there’s a forest behind my property and they probably found a good spot.
