JT,
Nice job.
I don?t know if you have read what I have said about swarms moving into meter boxes but bee careful. Africanized bees prefer ground nesting where as European bees prefer trees. Africanized swarms can bee very calm because they are small. As they get larger, they get more and more defensive.

How soon do you requeen them?
How well are they at accepting European queens?
