Nope, they're still in the box. I tried to brush them onto the landing board, but it's pretty narrow so most of the bees fell to the ground. Splap! This was a BIG swarm!* Fortunately there are several bees fanning – wafting Nasonov pheromone into the air – calling their sisters home.

*from a beginner's point of view, I'm sure a even small swarm seems big.
