They said the bees had been there overnight. I had to work late. I started putting my stuff out and got everything in place to move the swarm.  Just as I started putting on my jacket they started warming up to leave.  I hurried and put my stuff on, sprayed them with sugar water and shook them into the nuc.  This is the first time I have gotten the majority of the bees before we left.  It looked like every bee that was there got into the box.
