These bees came out of a nuc I over wintered. I saw swarm cells in the nuc on 4/11/22 and moved 1 super with capped queen cells onto another nuc set up then. I did not look for or purposely move the queen. Swarm Commander brought the swarm to the front of this bait hive and after about a half hour of messing with them, I was able to get an unmarked queen into a catcher clip and put her in the bait hive. The original queen was marked white. I'll be checking the super that I moved to see if she is in there, and if so, what happened to the capped queen cells.
