Violet-green Swallow gathering feathers

Today the Violet-green Swallow is concentrating on adding feathers to her nest. I suspect that means she is about finished building and soon will be laying eggs.

are the beetles gone or dead or what? did you ever figure out what she was doing with them?

After that big beetle day I have not seen any in the nestbox. I'm guessing that they all escaped because a day later the box appeared to be empty. Now I'm wondering if she continues to bring some in, but that I can't see them because of all the nesting material. I do see occasional movements of small critters, but I don't know who they are or how they got there.
