The swarm I captured in a West Chester neighborhood has now died. Although I saw a queen a couple a times, she was small and possibly not bred. I did see eggs, but now think those were from a drone layer, and this will not sustain a healthy colony. At last glance, the population was minimal, there were no eggs, and the colony is doomed. So very sad, but certainly a part of beekeeping.
