Hello everyone, So far I've learned quite a bit from you folks about my new bees. Here we go: we bought a 5 frame nuc in late April early may. Placed them in an 8 frame deep, added 3 foundationless frames. Ordered a medium super with waxed foundation frames to add to brood box. The weather wasn't being cooperative and I didn't get the super on in time. The hive split and half or better swarmed to a small apple tree. So I suited up and tried to find the queen and get her back in the hive, to no avail. I stewed on this for a couple days, as it seemed they where content hanging out in the tree. I had a bright idea on how to get them back in, ha, ha ( sinister laugh). I have a large mesh cotton bag that a dirt bike helmet came in. I gently slipped the bag over my bee beard, clinched it and applied a little smoke to get them to let go and fall in. It worked like a charm, now with my bag o' bees I take them to the hive about 10 feet away with new brood super on top and dump the in gently. It worked like a charm, they all went to the bottom brood box and business as usual. Before I did this I inspected the brood box and didn't see any abnormalities, other than it being full of uncapped nectar. This takes us to today, about 2 weeks has past since my bee repatriation and it's time for an inspection. The girls sure look busy, but it looks as if nothing has changed. They have some capped honey at the top of the bottom brood box. They haven't touched the medium brood box yet. Also when I pulled they frames, I found 3 queen cells in different locations. The frames are still full of nectar. And I don't see any new capped brood cells. Am I being impatient, or do I have an issue? I apologize for being so long winded, but I wanted to give you all the info I know. This is my first encounter with bees in about 20+ years, and I'm sure I've forgotten tons. When I was a kid, I grew up next to an orchard and I would help Mr. McCoy every chance I could. I am concerned about my new friends, help or at least reassure me if I am being impatient, please!
