I've trapped a swarm in a 5 frame deep nuc and need to relocate it to the bee yard. I know I need to move it because it seems that there are hundreds/thousand or so bees that are constantly (day and night) bearding on the face and beneath the hive. I live in coastal NC and its been in the high 90s for a couple of weeks and could be why they aren't all inside the hive. We tried to move the hive after dark this past weekend and things went poorly. Unfortunately this first attempt to move them resulted in myself, my son, and my wife battling angry bees (with my son and I being stung). The nuc is about 15 ft up in a tree. It is attached to the tree with a ratchet strap. It was difficult to block the entrance with #8 mesh because of the front of the hive being covered with bees. Smoking them did not help. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I've attached a pic to give an idea of what the set up looks like.
