When will they stop trying to swarm?

We are grateful you are here

When will they stop trying to swarm?

Is it a realistic expectation that I can split my hives out of their swarm instincts? I started spring in the middle of March with 4 hives and have since pulled out 12 splits. I've split out my original queens and moved them away to another yard, I've checkerboarded frames and added multiple supers, I've rotated brood boxes to move them down and create more laying space.

Am I doing something wrong or is there anything else I can do to slow down their swarming instincts?
