I have always wanted to get into beekeeping. Every year a new swarm of bees arrives and sets up home in one of the several water irrigation boxes outside my place. How do I go about putting them into a beebox?

We are grateful you are here

I have always wanted to get into beekeeping. Every year a new swarm of bees arrives and sets up home in one of the several water irrigation boxes outside my place. How do I go about putting them into a beebox?

So let's say I get the clothes, the smoker, and everything. Is the next step to just go to the hive, prop open the lid, smoke em, slowly cut the comb out, put them in the frames, and then attach rubber bands around the frames to keep them secure for a while?

Or should I wait for just before spring or something?
