Like Kirk said, they will follow the queen. This one was in a 2 in. dia., 6 ft. tall pine tree. I bent it over until the bees were touching the frames in my hive box. Then shook it. Most of the bees fell onto the frames and went down into the hive. The rest begin to follow. I placed the lid on and waited until they were all in, then took them home. Once there, I added 2 frames of honey I had stored, so they have something to eat until they can start bringing it in.
