Schawee,
was there some virgin queens in that swarm they may have wanted to leave with? Or possibly multiple queens?
They may have found a new location when Schawee put them in that nuc but they just couldn't get the queen to follow.

Nice video Schawee!

Just moving handfuls of bees you can feel the heat, I can only imagine the warmth from the whole swarm on your hand.

Nice job, and thanks for sharing it with us!

I've got to try that sometime.  I've not gotten good at finding the queen in swarms or cut outs but I keep trying.  As soon as I do I'll try this.  Thanks for the video!
