Cripes, it appears that you just can't put up a hive and the bees will go in there on their own. It appears you need a queen of some sort. It doesn't appear that the queen will just show up either? I may be reading up on this for a couple years, i've got alot to learn!
I wonder where the bees in my yard go to at night and over the winter?
Well this is one I found from WI. Not the one my BIL used I know. But just for reference I suppose.
