More than enough bees to do a mite count with, but not by much. I have a black queen in a queen catcher clip & bees in 4 old medium frames in a nuc with a jar feeder on the inner cover. I plan on releasing her tomorrow & see if she will start laying. If so, I have resources to boost to see what she can do. Neither this "swarm" or yesterday's are strong enough to survive without boosting and serious feeding.
Despite reducing the opening of the nuc to about 1 bee, this "swarm" got overwhelmed before I could use a robber screen to close it up. Only some robbers remained inside when I opened the hive this morning.
