Got a call last night, swarm just moved into a tree.  Going to try and "coax" them out with some bee quick and smoke this afternoon before they have time to set up house.  Question:  Should I just run them out and let them reorganize on a branch and then try to get them or vacuum them up as they exit the hole?

I like doing cut-outs, but I love catching swarms!

Just moved in as how long? A few days, a week? Trap out would be best.

I say trap out, bee go and smoke may make them exit to the next county if you get them stirred up enough.

If they have been in there more than a day, they have already built comb. I think a trapout is necessary at this point.
