Just took a peak and they aren't going in an out of the hive anymore. They are clustered underneath the swarm catcher/hive.

If that is not a five frame box, I would get them in a five frame box with either a frame of open brood and some nectar from another hive, or at least a frame of nectar from another hive....that swarm is way too small for a regular hive body and I doubt they are carrying enough honey to survive on their own being so small!
