It helps when you install a package to put an empty hive box (no frames - just the box) on top of the box into which you are dumping the package. Then the empty box acts like a funnel and keeps the bees going down into the box below instead of out in every direction.
Then, of course, you remove the empty "funnel" box before you close up your new hive after installation.
