bee hive

hi all,

i live in alamogordo near holloman air force base. i made a bee hive out of wood from a picture in a magazine. i do need to find out how i attract a queen bee. i planted lantana and russian sage, there was already catnip plants there. last year the bees were all over the catnip blossoms.

i understand in the spring if there are to many queens in a hive a queen will leave the hive with some workers and look for a new hive. how can i attract the queen to my hive.
