The swarm settled right in to it's temporary wax coated cardboard nucleus.

Of course, the bees knew what to do.

Me,however, had to mess with them.  Instead of leaving them alone to take care of themselves I had to  poke my nose in and see what they were up to.

In the space of five day they had built some beautiful comb hanging down from the inside cover of the temporary nucleus.

I removed the comb, upset the bees big time, added some
more frames with foundation, and generally screwed things up. 
I woke up about 2:00 am and decided that I had done
it all wrong.
