I'm new to beekeeping, and while I was doing some excavating, I found a bee hive in a old cherry tree. My question is: how close or far should I put my nuc to the existing hive, and is there a height prefrence that I should hang it. I just got some swarm lure and I'm wondering what my chances are of catching the bees if and when they swarm. Also, how often should I check to see if in fact I have cought the swarm.
Thanks for any and all info.
