Re: Two different trap-outs, two questions?
If the home owners are going to remove siding and clean, it would be incredibly simpler for you to just remove the siding and do a cut out.
That way you salvage most of the comb, brood, stores, and the queen. (In one afternoon)
If they want the tree gone, ditto. If they dont, do a Hogan Trapout and you may get the queen, but its at least three weeks on that venture.
If you just trap foragers for a week, most of your bees are middle aged already...

It takes a family to raise a family, it takes a village to really screw that up... Djei5
