Prevent swarming?

Prevent swarming?

So obligatory this is my first year blah blah. I had one hive swarm back in late May. That was on me. But now my other hive that’s filled two supers and is working on capping both has swarmed on me. They were started on the week of Easter from a 5 frame nuc and are jn 2 deeps and 2 supers. For next year, how do I curb that swarming impulse? Just keep adding supers and pulling capped ones? Give them some empty frames to work on? I’m assuming it’s because the queen ran out of space to lay. They have around 8-10 full frames of capped honey throughout the two deeps. Any thoughts?
