A friend of mine is going to be hiring a company to remove a tree from his property in october. He found the hive while the inspector was looking at it and wants me to remove the hive before they cut it down and possibly kill them. The hive is 6 ft from the ground and there is some tree debris obstructing the hole which can be removed, but i just want some advise before i dive into things. Idealy i would need to find and catch the queen but i have no idea how extensive the hive inside is or if i would even be able to. Would it bee better to cut the tree open? I had an idea of using a bee vacuum...? Ideas please.
