Yeah that’s the kind of activity I was getting. It’s strange how the disappearance of the scouts coincided with the cooler weather though, but maybe it’s just coincidence.This is what was happening around my bait hive immediately before my own bees headed out in a swarm. Since that issue has now been sorted there have been no visitors at all; obviously I have been anticipating the arrival of my own bees. So I suspect your bees have been similarly sorted.
I'm not giving up on acquiring new blood though, and I'm sure you won't. The temperature being on the rise seems to favour swarming, but when they need to swarm they will.
