Happy to report the swarm that's been in the tree forever is now hived. We had cold temps at night for the last week and I noticed their numbers had been dwindling. This morning they were still up in the tree when I checked but it was only about half the bees. Late this evening I checked the hive and noticed the comb in the tree bee-less. I looked around a little bit and noticed a swarm in a small peach tree behind the hives near the ground. I snipped the branch and laid it on top of the blue nuc. They went right in and within minutes they were fanning. It was amazing to watch up close and I wish I would have made a video of it. Anyway it'll be nice to see what happen with the hive. I'll check in 7-10 days and see if all is well.
I'll get another empty nuc out this week for a swarm trap.
