I caught a swarm from one of my hives- does it matter how close to the originating hive I place it(in a hive body). Another hive swarmed then went back in the hive, that makes 2 0f 5 swarming today!

I had a similar situation about a month ago, had one of my hives swarm and was lucky enough to be home when they did. Shook them out of the tree and into a nuc, I let them get settled and moved them right back into my apiary that night. I have not had any issues from either the parent colony or the swarm. They are less than 3 feet away from each other.
