Getting rid of bees How to get rid of bee's? (and avoid harsh poisons). The hive was under the house. Bee's were entering through a small vent between bricks just above the ground level. I blocked up all other vents with plastic inserts sold for this purpose in a hardware store.
The main vent was now my target.
I got an ordinary plastic fluid funnel and cut off the spout about one inch in from the end - to make the hole slightly larger so that a bee could get through. '''Just one bee at a time.'''
The funnel was then (this was at night when the bees were sleeping) fixed over the hole in the bricks and held in place with a complete packet of '''blu tak''' poster putty, placed around the rim of the funnel.
So now the bee's had a smaller and single entry to their nest.
In the afternoon's a '''traffic jam''' of bee's would build up. I'd spray them with fly spray and make a fast getaway.
Unfortunate I know. (I'd called various bee keepers but none could or would help). Later I made a transparent flap -held in place with bluu tak, to make a sort of one-way exit and difficult entry point.
It took a week of effort but eventually worked. When I removed the funnel it was choked-up with dead bee's inside.
Also at night I squirted fly spray and cochroach spray into the slot on several nights. What additional effect this had was hard to know.
I considered using a '''bug zapper''' as described above but these are a bit difficult to find. Anyway the above worked.

Bees work hard to keep the comb and honey cool. If you kill the bees, the combs will melt leaving you with honey running down your walls. First thing to do is find a local bee keeper. He/She may have to cut into the wall to get access to the bees. It is a messy job, and can cost some money, so be prepared. Here are a few ways to find a local bee keeper.
Alot of bee keepers will leave their name with the local police, fire department, and exterminators.Most states have bee keeping clubs. You should be able to locate a nearby club online .Leave a posting on beesource.com click on the exchange button. It is a very friendly group of people.If you by chance are in the Minneapolis area, I would be happy to do it for you. you can leave me a message at bee source. My name on that site is Joshua2639
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.
To get rid of bees inside cinder blocks inside a garage it is best to use pesticide. Use a spray which kills the bees as well as the nest, or block the area off.
Simple ''USE'' the chimney. :)
A beekeeper will try to remove a wild hive (from a tree, or a hole in the ground) by moving the brood (the bee eggs and larvae) and the queen bee into a portable box hive. Foraging bees will return to the box if it is left beside the old hive, and so long as the queen was moved into the new hive. After nightfall, when all the bees have returned, the hive can be sealed up and taken away. Of course, the position of the wild hive will determine the difficulty of the whole operation. I had a swarm set up their home inside the double brick wall of my house. A beekeeper set up a new hive outside with a new queen, and an inverted funnel on my wall. The funnel allowed the bees to come out of the wall, but they were unable to find their way back in, so they went into the new hive and adopted the new queen. Eventually (some weeks), all the bees emerged from my wall and into the new hive. The old queen probably did not survive, as there were no bees returning with nectar to make new honey.
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.
You need to hire a professional Bee Removal Company. I actually had this problem. A man came to my home. Suited up in protective gear. He first had to break through the wall. Then after killing the swarming "Live" Bees he then had to Remove The Hive. Which, by the way, was massive. There is always a hive. Once I got over the shock of the SIZE of this hive...the rest of this was really not a big deal to handle. Good Luck!
Many people will come and take the bees for nothing. A bee hive is valuable.
Spray Raid into the nest and make sure to cover your hands to prevent the bees from defending their 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.
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
Use smoke to make the bees sleepy, then go inside the hive, and find the queen bee. Move her to a location away from your home, but near enough the other bees can find her They will scent her, once they come out of the smoke induced grogginess and rebuild her a hive where she is. If you wish to commit suicide that is one of the best ways. Phone a local beekeeper he will be glad of the bees.
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.
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.
The first thing I would do is to see if I had a bee keeper living in the area and ask him for suggestions or if he would help you, check with your town hardware store, "not Lowes or Home Depot" or a nursery that sells flowers or trees, I do not know if you are in a warm or cold climate. Without removing the queen bee it will be a slow process, 1st you could block the hole at night fall or when the bees become less active. 2nd you could spray a wasp or hornet killer on or around the hole, honey bees do not fly at night, start with 2 cans of hornet spray,I do not like to kill honey bees they are our friends,try to make sure there is only one way into the wall check the attic for holes. 3nd you could cut the wall out to gain access the hive, however that could create another problem, once the hive is exposed that's why it would be nice too have a beekeepers knowledge with you when you cut the wall out to remove the hive you should have a bees smoker to slow the bees down so the bee keeper can remove the hive.
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
Get inside a bee suit and carry the hive far far away.
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.
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
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.
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.
