    Default Hiving a swarm from a trap

    I caught a swarm in one of my swarm traps and now I need to put it in a hive. The swarm trap is in a tree. Do I just take the frames out of the swarm trap and put it in a nuc box and move it to where I want it or do I need to position the nuc box were the swarm trap was in order to capture the field bees? The swarm trap is cardboard and I want to get rid of it and give the swarm a regular hive. Thanks for any help.

    go in evening close up the hive trap and move it to where ever your going to keep them, and swap out the frames into the new hive
