Well went out to check the hives between thunderstorms today and found the hive #4 had thrown a small swarm, maybe 1 1/2 lbs of bees all clumped together on the side of a hive. Got the gear on, veil and gloves, and swept the bees off the hive into a small bucket. Took a shallow with drawn comb and set it up with a queen excluder between the hive body and bottom board, dumped the bees in, saw the queen and closed it up. It's great to get another hive this was but how do I stop the rest of the hives from swarming or is it too late. I inverted the hives last month to give more brood room and have plenty of room for honey. I'm planning to open all the hives this week and pull any full honey frames, does anybody know what else can be done cause I'm stumped :-\. Can't make too many more hives, getting a bit low on equipment.
