I trapped a swarm from an apricot tree in the Big Garden. I think the queen missed the box, because after 2 hours all of the bees were on the outside of the box and few inside. The queen must have been hanging out on the outside. The whole bee-covered arrangement was sitting on a plastic lawn chair so I picked up the whole thing and dumped the bees directly into a fresh hive body. The weather was getting cold and blustery and the light was fading in the evening, so I felt it best to get the bees off the chair and into a hive.
