Should I wait to take bees from swarm trap?

545 1
I have a couple of traps that have attracted smallish swarms In the past few days.

Wondering when people remove bees? Right away or wait a few weeks for capped brood?

In the past I've left them up for months and then harvested wild honey comb for my friends but it's a lot of work - essentially doing a cutout from a swarm trap.

Just looking for opinions
