How do you get rid of bee hives?
We don't get rid of bee hives, we call a local bee club. They will come get them for free and maybe give you honey in trade. Bee hives have a great value beyond honey, its called pollination. A bee hive is not a swarm. A hive contains brood, honey, drones, workers and a queen, etc... A swarm is a group of bees and a queen looking for a new home. They are very easy to deal with and are a valuable asset to any beekeeper!
So what ever the case, CALL A LOCAL BEEKEEPER! Keep the bees and don't pollute the honey with chemicals.
bleach and gas wll burn the hive without setting fire to it, you could also try the acid used to clean glass block Honeybee hives can be collected by beekeepers. Just contact a local bee keeper and he will probably be more than happy to come get them for you. If they aren't honeybees, just spray them with insect killer.
