I've got a vac that sucks them into a medium, and then i just leave them in it if i get home at night, and in the morning put comb into frames and into a deep, then move the medium over onto the deep. Wait for them to go down and start working the comb, then pull the top of my vac and put a inner and a top on it.
Thanks for the feedback everybody. I ended up leaving them in the basement till this morning. They got combined with a weaker colony. Laid a sheet out in front of the weak colony...shook a few frames of bees from that colony...poured out the swarm next to the established bees...and they all walked in together!
Again..thanks for the feedback.
