I’m not generally one that names queens, with that said this particular colonies actions warrants a name. That nice swarm hanging on the bottom of the trap didn’t move in.
They must have felt the double stack nuc boxes were a bit confining. They had 5 beautiful combs drawn in amungst that little cluster of bees. They did fill the one drawn comb that I had in the trap with nectar, and started building on the adjacent frames. The brood was all outside the box. Bees can be curious little creatures. Anyway, I managed to cut the combs off, and rubber band them into frames. Then I hung the new box with bees frames and all in the tree where the trap was.
