    Or just put it over the hole with no box that's the way a lot of folks do it.

    If you don't use a box around it, make sure that it is flat on the inner cover. If it is one of the type that you have to prop it up on sticks and put a little bee space under it, and you have nothing around it, other bees will start robbing and things will go downhill. But some of them have a small screen in the center (as opposed to little holes all over) and you can put them flat on the ventilation hole of the inner cover.
