Bees that should be relocated

The honey bee is becoming scarcer in the modern world.  If you have a honey bee infestation, the colony is very likely to be hosting the queen bee in a nest somewhere in your home.  Relocating an entire bee hive might take some time because the removal team has to find the hive and block all the bees inside.  The hive should then be moved to a better area.  Once the hive is re-opened in the new location, the entire colony will remain where the hive is and relocation will be successful.

Bees that cannot really be relocated

Unfortunately the other bee species like Bumble Bees, Carpenter Bees, Ground Bees, Hornets and Wasps cannot be relocated because they don’t have colonies and their nests are easily discarded.  If you really have your heart set on removing these bees yourself, you should first dress in bulky clothing and find the nest.  Once you have located the nest, you should wait till after dusk and spray it with pesticides.  It is better to wait till after dusk because then the bees will be in one location and is less likely to sting you.  When the bees are dead, you can remove the nest and make sure that you don’t leave any bits of the nest behind.  Monitor the area and watch out for the beginning of new nests for the next few days.
