    Not sure what went wrong with my posting (above). I was asking advice about whether to add a third box to my Warre hive. If the colony feels cramped, might they swarm again? Any advice gratefully received.

      Not experienced with warres but that looks like a big swarm so it may be worth giving them a week or so and then add a third. Just let them settle in first.

        Thanks, Dewey – that sounds like good advice. I’ve built inspection windows into the boxes, so I may have a peek in when they’ve settled down and see how they’re getting on. They certainly seem busy this morning with lots of coming and going.
