I completely agree. A wasted opportunity for education and raising public awareness. I'm pretty sure a swarm collection response would have been the right choice...How does one assume that just because that area has africanized genes that this particular swarm carried it?Efff the Padres.
Call a beekeeper and have them collect the swarm while the crowd watches. That would have been vastly more entertaining (and educational) than most baseball games I've seen. No reason for them to kill a swarm!
