The swarm which arrived into an empty nuc in my garden quickly took up residence and when I checked last week it was HUGE! So HUGE I transferred it the week after it arrived into an empty hive; the queen had already started laying. Today I saw the queen and the brood was fine and my uninvited guests, having been made welcome, look to have settled in. 🙂
