Artificial Swarming of Honey Bee Colonies.
By carrying out an artificial swarm procedure you can create an additional bee colony with quine. It is very easy to force your bee hive to swarm. But you have to do it gently - just not to add an extra room (extra hive body). And when your hive becomes overcrowded - the hive definitely will swarm.
How to control this process: firstly you have to install a couple of baits near potential swarm landing places...

Usually I use any medium size or deep size frame after extraction to attract the rest of the swarm. See left frame.
