A bee hive in the forest is a welcome sight. A bee hive in a house can be a destructive nuisance. To effectively remove a hive from a structure, the bees, combs, and honey must all be removed. Killing the bees does not fix the problem as the honey and brood left behind will spoil and rot, causing further damage to the structure.
Live colonies can be safely removed and relocated, preserving the bees and the structure. Non-invasive approaches are sometimes available that require little to no disassembly of the structure. PLEASE DO NOT SPRAY!

When a hive gets too crowded, the Queen and most of the workers set off to find a new home. She waits on her perch surrounded by the many workers while scouts search for a suitable location. While intimidating in appearance, swarms are typically not aggressive. Swarms are easily relocated and ideal for preserving. PLEASE DO NOT SPRAY!
Honey Bee Identification
Honey bees have thick furry bodies, wide black legs, and orange-tan striping. They nest in cavities above ground and are usually not aggressive. Relocation is the best option.
Yellow jacket wasps have a narrow waist, skinny yellow legs, and bright yellow banding. They usually nest below ground and in cavities. VERY aggressive. Extermination is the best option.
