- Place the hive between 8 and 15 feet high. Putting the hive in a tree or on a roof works well.
- The hive should not be in full, direct sunlight, but a bit of broken shade works well.
- Face the entrance of the hive towards the sun, being South in the Northern Hemisphere, and North in the Southern Hemisphere.
- If you have a bit of old brood comb, it is good to place this in your bait hive as well.
Once you set your hive, leave it alone for 2-3 weeks. When you go check on your hive, just look at it from a distance, try not to handle it very much. You can add more bee lure every once in a while, like every month or so.
