Removing a Honey Bee Hive from a structure is a much more involved process than removing a honey bee swarm.
The process of removing a honey bee hive is known as a cut-out. It begins by opening up the structure, usually from the exterior of the building. Often this means cutting through the siding and removing trim pieces. Once the space is open, I use a special bee vacuum to collect as many of the bees as possible. Then I begin removing honeycomb piece-by-piece vacuuming off bees as I go.
