If you capture any bees now they will have to be fed through the winter and have a queen added to them.
One prodedure is to wait until spring. make a funnel of screen wire. Big end over hole in tree. Set up a hive close to the tree with a frame of brood in it and a few nurse bees, no queen. Direct the small end of the funnel,which should have a 3/8 inch opening, into the hive. The bees in the tree can get out but will have difficulty getting back in. When they return from foraging they will be attracted to the brood and take care of it, hopefully raising a new queen. If no sign of queen rearing, buy queen and install. Several days will get most of the bees out of the tree and you can leave the rest to hopefull recover and keep things going but don't bet on it. Fold a small piece of screen wire and stop up the hive entrance at night. You should already have stapled the hive together with 2 hive staples on each side, angled in the opposite direction to hold things together. You don't want the hive coming apart, ask me how I know. Move the hive at night to a new location at least 2 miles away and remove the screen wire.
