Only if they are in the chimney. Get the honey out first

Light a fire! (The smoke will drive them out).

First of all DO NOT start a fire in the fireplace to drive the bees out. The bees could have damaged the lining of the fireplace creating a home fire hazard or created a nest that is blocking the flue and this will back smoke up into the house. Step 1. Install a chimney balloon or inflatable damper at the bottom of the fireplace to seal the fireplace tight and prevent the bees from gaining entry to the home. Don't trust your damper to stop them since it is likely that your damper does not have a tight enough seal to keep mad and determined bees out of your home. Step 2. Use a bug fogger spray bomb to kill the bees in the chimney if the hive is not visible from the chimney top. If it is visible than you can use a direct spray insecticide to kill the bees. keep your distance from the hive on this step and have an escape route ready. Step 3. Have a certified chimney sweep come and clean your chimney so the bees do not return to a hive and to make sure the bees did no structural damage to the chimney. This is very important since the hive can be a fire hazard and MUST be removed. Insecticides that can legally be sprayed into a fireplace are hard to come by. Read the label. You may find that no insecticide for this purpose is legally available.

Considering the dangers of Africanized bees, you would be well advised to hire a local firm which specializes in bee removal. They can clear the entire hive without the bees going after them. Some may be able to relocate the hive, if that is important to you. In addition, there may be a large amount of hive wax and honey to be removed, which could turn into quite a job. Also, they may be able to suggest ways to prevent its happening again.

i heard a thing about vinegar in a bowl that my help Answer for bee hive You need to locate the bee hive and destroy it at night when the bees will all be in the hive. I would call a professional if it is a large hive.

They excrete it from the rear end of the abdomen. Honey bees do not defecate in the hive if they can possibly avoid doing so, they will take 'clearing' flights in the general area of the hive.

Spray Raid into the nest and make sure to cover your hands to prevent the bees from defending their hive.

Many people will come and take the bees for nothing. A bee hive is valuable.

Yes moth balls are a proven way of deterring bees. Hang a few moth balls in a nylon stocking near the bee hive in order to get rid of them.

You light a fire, and put a person on the torches below the bees hive, then they will smoke it out, and you will be able to harvest the honey :D

Yes, bees do defecate. They eat, so they have to get rid of waste. The don't urinate, though. Their nitrogenous waste is passed into the rectum and mixed with the faeces. They won't defecate in the hive: they always do it in flight away from the hive. Even when confined to the hive for weeks at a time in winter they will 'cork it' until they can get out.

Its best to get someone to come out and deal with it...they will probably spray it with smoke to subdue the bees, then freeze the hive with liquid nitrogen.

There is probably a hive nearby. Your best bet is to hire an exterminator. Most bees are africanized, and can be vicious when disturbed, and you have limited protection in a basement.

the best way is a exterminator We had a hive in a 4 foot hedge. At night we poured 48 ounces of rubbing alcohol on top of the hive. The next morning the whole hive turned black and the bees were dead. Answer my dad put terps or sumthin all over it and burnt it all down.

Bees are terrified of fire, beekeepers puff smoke in to the hive to make the bees go to the bottom when removing the honey. I wouldn't recommend taking up smoking just to keep a bumble bee away though

Bees can defecate just like any other animal. They usually do it while flying and won't do it in the hive unless they are ill.

Ammonia alone will not kill bees. The most effective way to get rid of bees is to have a professional bee-keeper collect the bees. If that is not possible, pick up sevin dust at your local lawn and garden center. Sprinkle this on the bee hive or nest.

The only true way to stop this is to get rid of the hive. This can be dangerous though so it is safer to set up repellents around the house.

if you mean virtual villagers 3 first you make a fire than have one of your villagers get a burned out torch by the bee hive

It is advised that only a trained and capable apiarist handle the removal of a bees' hive. This is very dangerous and if not done with the proper care, knowledge and equipment, it could lead to severe physical injury or death.

Simply get a strainer about 2 inches bigger than the hive and spray bug spray for bees at it.(raid).Remember to wash the strainer well with soap if you are going to use it again.

They are no harder to get rid of, but more care needs to be taken because they are more protective of their hive than are European honey bees so are more ready to sting. Unless you are experienced at the task I would recommend you get professional help.

Do not put salt in the beehive. You are likely to get stung! It is important to get a proffessional to take the bees away. They will re-locate them to somewhere more apropriat and if they are honey bees, they will be added to another honey bee hive. Type in 'Pest Control' or 'Renterkeeper' and many professionals will come up and be happy to help you.

no coke will not get rid of bees it will only attract them

If there aren't any beekeepers in your area, then you have no other option but to kill them. The most effective and cheapest way to get rid of bees is through the use of bug sprays or insecticides. A can of bug spray does not cost much, and you likely have a can of it lying around in your home already.
