How to catch a swarm.

In the spring or in that case later in the year, honey bees swarm when their colony becomes too huge and congested with bees. They do so to relieve colony congestion and to establish new bee colonies. The queen and around half the bees depart the colony when it is time to swarm in search of a new home. Swarms frequently pause on their way to their new home, stopping to rest on a tree or bush.
