I seriously doubt the will jump on board.  You will need to 'capture' 
the hive.  There are a dozen ways to do this.  Sometimes when a hive 
will 'swarm' (give gets so big a new queen and a portion of bees will 
set out on their own to find a home)  you can take an empty box and 
spray the inside with lemon 'Pledge'  they will move into the box on 
their own.  You then locate the queen, put her in your un-inhabited hive 
and the rest of the swarm will follow her in.
