As I caught a swarm the other day I was just wondering are there drones in the swarm as well as workers?

Lots of Commercial hives.......
If it's any help I caught a swarm last Sunday and after having re-homed it in a nuc box and moved it 25 miles away from the swarm site I noticed that there were several drones wandering in and out later on in the evening.
