New bee hive already split and swarmed

We are grateful you are here

New bee hive already split and swarmed

Bought a nuc 3 weeks ago, put in my 8 frame hive, one week in it had expanded to edges, added a new 8 frame medium box, today 3 weeks after that they split and swarmed. Hive is full of honey, so added a new medium box, but not having any luck getting the bees off this norway spruce tree they have swarmed onto.

Put my nuc box under it with two frames with wax foundation, and tried scooping them off tree, but must not be gentle as they got loud and angry. Guess this is a reminder to check weekly before hive is full and they split. Buying new hive tomorrow incase they do go in box, but dark now, so time is up.
