Just wanted to share some cool video footage of a swarm that came out of one of my hives yesterday. It was actually a hive that had been split about 3 weeks ago from another hive. I was hoping they would make a new queen and stay in the new box. But it seems they had other plans. Strangely enough after swarming out of the hive I wasn’t sure what to expect to find in the original box. But upon inspection it seems there were still UN-hatched queen cells. Maybe the first queen that hatched decided not to kill the other Queens and stay, but preferred to take half to colony & swarm?
Anyway, the following videos are in order of the events as they took place.
And heres just a little extra feature vid:
