How do you lure bees to a empty beehive?

Bees are famous resource insects, because they can pick flowers and make honey and are well known, there are a large number of wild bees distributed all over our country, if you can trap and raise artificial is undoubtedly the way to get rich, but to successfully trap wild bees is not simple, let's take a look at how to lure bees to the hive!
  •  Bee attracting principle
  Bee trapping refers to the trapping of bees living in the wild. The principle is to attract wild bees to nest by using bee hives and bee holes, etc. The target bee colonies mainly fall into two categories: one is the natural bee division period, and the other is the migration and flight group that abandon the nest due to factors such as lack of honey source and invasion of enemies. To successfully lure bees, it is necessary to master the bees' habits of bee division and migration. Otherwise, it is highly likely to be in vain.
  •  Bee attractor Equipment
  Bee-attracting tools are mainly beehive (bee-attracting bucket) and bee hole two kinds, which beehive is made of wood, plastic and other materials, bee hole is artificial excavation or use of natural caves to attract bees, the two kinds of bee tools have their own strengths and shorts, in order to enhance the effect of bee-attracting inner wall and near the nest door also apply a layer of beeswax, because beeswax has a natural attraction to wild bees.
  •  Bee attracting time
  1, natural bee division period: Natural bee division period is the best time to attract bees, the reason is that there are a large number of bee colonies in the natural bee division period to find nesting sites, the specific time is different due to different bee species, climate, etc., generally concentrated in March to May when the climate is suitable and rich in honey sources.
  2, the migration peak period: the migration peak period is the best time to attract bees, because the migration peak period has a large number of migration groups to find nesting sites, the specific time is different due to bee species, climate, etc., generally concentrated in the lack of honey or serious enemy damage from July to September.
  •  Bee attraction site
  1, hive conditions: the beehive should be placed in the place where there is a wild bee colony activity, otherwise the beehive can not be lured, the simplest way is to observe the honey collection behavior of bees, if there are bees in the honey collection and no one nearby beekeeping indicates that there is a wild bee colony to attract.
  2, honey source conditions: the lure hive should be placed in a place where the honey source is rich and continuous, the reason is that the survival and reproduction of bees are inseparable from the honey source, and there will be no bees to nest and settle in the place where the honey source is scarce, and the lure hive must be investigated and clear about the nearby honey source.
  3, nesting conditions: the beehive should be placed in a place that meets the nesting habits of bees, one is that the surrounding environment must be quiet and rarely disturbed by humans and animals, the other is that it must be sheltered from the wind and warm in winter and cool in summer.
