Catching a swarm of bees is not usually difficult if it is within reach. This medium-size swarm was conveniently placed and all I had to do was shake it out of the tree. The property owner was going to prune the tree anyway, so I did the work for him to retrieve the rest of the bees.
Catching a swarm in a basket like this and placing top bars over the bees immediately saves me work later, as it allows me to transfer them to a top bar hive as a single unit, after allowing them to settle for a few days and start building comb.
