Keeping Swarms in Warm Weather

In warm weather, a swarm left until evening in a skep at the swarm site, to ensure all the bees are in place, may result in the loss of the swarm.  This occurs when the scout bees are particularly active in finding new homes.  John Haverson has kindly provided some timely advice here.
