How to Get Rid of Honeybees

from wikiHow - The How to Manual That You Can Edit
Bees are helpful yet intimidating insects. A large beehive is rarely a great danger to many people. Sometimes bees must be removed to protect allergic or easily frightened people.

Steps

  1. Try to get a look at the bees. If they are a brownish orange color and have fuzzy bodies, they are honeybees.
  2. If there is an open-air cluster of honeybees, more or less football size, it is a SWARM. They may eventually move away (in a few hours or a few days). Instead of trying to destroy them, call your local beekeeping association. They will be happy to pick up the valuable bees and take them away.
  3. If the honeybees are coming and going from a cavity in a tree or building, it is a BEEHIVE. This can only be safely removed by a professional exterminator or beekeeper.
  4. If in a building's wall, the beehive must be exposed by removing paneling and then the honeycombs and broodcombs cut out; all the live bees and combs are then taken away.
  5. If the beehive is in a tree, the tree must usually be cut down and then the trunk or limb split open to remove the combs and bees.
  6. It may be easier and safer to leave the beehive alone
