I have a hive of wild bees that have lived in a hollow area near my chimney since at least 1989. Last year the bees swarmed and I do not know where that group went. I was wondering if I had some type of empty hive already set up, would the swarm have gone to it? If so, please give me a few details about what kind of new hive wild bees would like to find when they swarm. How often do they swarm? How far from the original hive should a new hive be? Thank you.
