What to do with an august swarm?

I know the old adage, may hay July fly, but I have a swarm trap up and when I checked it today, bees are in and out. They weren’t there last week. Watched it for a few minutes and saw several bringing pollen in so it seems I have caught a late season swarm. I caught another one 3 weeks ago and have two strong hives. I also have lots of honey frames, and frames of empty drawn comb in storage. What is the best thing to do with these new girls? Combine with the other late swarm? Try to overwinter as a nuc? Looking for thoughts. Thanks.
