Should I be concerned about this being a Swarm or Absconding?
I recently moved my hive on November 1st (Double Deep, in GA) from my neighbor's yard back into my yard. My neighbor was graciously hosting them for a couple months while I had some construction being completed. The move distance was approximately 75 yards, and I used the "all at once" method, over the "one foot every day" method.
It's been cold the last couple days, so I haven't seen much activity from them. However, today I noticed a considerable number of bees (200 to 500) flying around and hanging out in the general area where the hive was previously. There still seems to be a lot of my bees near the hive still and many are doing their orientation flights (which is good), but I am a bit concerned the bee that are in the old area.
Is there anything I can do for the bee's hanging around my neighbor's place? Please see the link for a picture where some bees are congregating on a plant about 5 feet from where the hive was located.
Thanks in advance!
