The swarm I captured earlier obviously didn't like the nuc box. After 26 hours they left and were hanging in a swarm in a tree in our garden. This was just above our bbq area.
After 2 days of hanging there, i decided to give it another try.

I put 4 frames with wax starter strips in them and 1 frame with old comb with uncapped honey.
I put them inside this box at 5 pm yesterday
Today at 1pm they swarmed again. they were in my orange tree for an hour and finally left.
Although the frames contain starter strips with 4.9 mm pattern , the addition was done at a 90 degrees angle from the starter strip.
