I took my first 30 second look into the polynuc today, this is the swarm I collected two days ago. The bees are out and about doing what bees do I suppose BUT, they seem to be tightly clustered at the rear of the nuc box on the frames? I assumed for what ever reason they would be in the middle of the frames?

Oh, and the roof where THAT swarm came from, gave out TWO more swarms this afternoon when the cloud went and the sun came out.

doesn't matter where they are clustered just as long as they are in the box not worthy

They will be clustered as they will be busy drawing out wax
