The Swarm is Gone
Friday the swarm looked lively and was bringing in pollen. Today, there's not a bee alive. I had a jar of syrup on top of the inner cover with a box around it, but maybe all this rain and them not being able to get out, plus they were a small swarm had something to do with it. There's some dead bees on top of the inner cover. I didn't take the time to look in the frames. I'll go into it tomorrow morning. I hate it for the bees. But I've learned some lessons and hopefully the next swarm will fare better.
