Hi Joe - I’m in the same situation here, and as of yesterday I feel fairly certain I don’t have swarm preparations (or emergency queen makings) quite yet. I went back into my hive that I was concerned about and ended up seeing the queen cups either torn down or empty, plus I found brand new eggs in worker cells.
It’s been very hot here & I know you’re not super far away, have you also had 90 F days? My son also texted me a photo of some impressive bearding yesterday while I was at work, worrying they were about to swarm! I told him about bearding & he looked up more info and went outside and put a beach umbrella up to shade them
Anyway, I was wondering - did you see any eggs, larvae etc in the queen cells you mentioned?
