Just caught a swarm…unusual amount of drones?
I just hived my second swarm of the season. It was a big one, and quite the ordeal given that it was pouring rain. For hours. They were not happy! At any rate, I let them chill in a cardboard box overnight and got them into the hive when the weather was better this morning. I noticed a…noticeable number of drones. I am not hugely experienced, but I don't think that that is normal for a swarm. Could they have a virgin queen? Or are these drones just flying around, they see a swarm, and they decide to join in the fun?
