After a hive is destroyed will there be a few bees from that hive still hanging around and if so for how long?
Yes, there will be some hanging around ... any foraging bee that was flying gathering pollen and nectar at the time the hive was destroyed, will make their way back to where the hive entrance was sited to bring back their food for the colony. They stick around for at least a day or two, but they cannot start a new colony without a queen bee.

Remove a hive of bees whose nest is hanging in a tree by calling local police and asking for a contact with a local beekeeper who removes hives. Most beekeepers will not c…harge you, especially is the hive is strong and its location is easily accessible. Others will remove for a charge so it is important to ask in advance of removal.
You don't destroy a bumble bee hive!
Bee hives can last a long time if they are not beaten and hurt by predators. The hive will not be used more than once by bee colonies. After it is used it will dry and be holl…ow and light (weight).

In a word: nothing. Male bees (drones) have only one purpose in life, to mate with new queens and will be out of the hive looking for queens whenever the weather is suit…able. They do no work at all within the hive. For this reason, at the end of the summer all of the drones are thrown out of the hive to die so they are not a drain on precious food resources during the winter. In the spring the queen will start laying new drone eggs for that season's drones.
It depends on how good a carpenter you are.
Without proper protective equipment, YOU WILL GET STUNG.
not usually because they think that their hive will be attacked again so for their safety safety they should move to another pace.....saftey1st! lolz
It varies from the size of the whole swarm of bees if there aren't many bees it should take a few days to weeks. If the whole hive it a circular shape it takes much longer. So… smalls ones are alot quicker than the big ones.

Normally a honey bee returns to its hive each night. In anything other than warm Summer temperatures it would be unlikely for an individual bee to survive until morning if it …were outside overnight. However, bees do survive quite well away from a hive when they are in a swarm that is looking for a new place to set up home. The swarm generates its own heat and this ensures that the bees are able to survive even if the temperature drops a bit or it rains. But even swarms try to pick a good warm day to make their move.
They make honeycombs that's where you get honey from.
Because the hive is always at work along with taking care of the queen bee.
