There were too much bees and no spaces.
So, I inserted 13 new frames in BB01(brooding box 01 - 5 new) BB02 - 5 news by doing checkerboard. And 3 new frames in the super. But baseball size of bees were out at the entrance continuously. After inserting new frames, still the bees were out only at night.
(by the way I am using Styrofoam, Paradise bee box) Last night, two baseball size of bees were at the entrance only at night.
So, about 5 hours ago, I removed bottom screen just in case if there was humidity issue in the box. And now, when I’ve just checked the hive, I’ve seen no guard bees at all.
Outside temperature has been around 20~25 celcius, continuously.
When swarm occurs, guard bees also go out together?
(I would like to inspect the box but right now is almost midnight ~
I cannot turn on light long enough to inspect.)
So, please let me know what it means when there are no guard bees.
