At work I maintain remote facilities. A hive has taken up residence in an abandoned outbuilding. The boss wants them gone. Unfortunately one guy threw a couple cans of hot shot foggers inside the building and luckily the hive is between the walls and well ventilated to outside air and I think exposure was minimal. I've got them to agree to let me remove them. I should tell you I am a rank amateur at beekeeping but i have top rate gear, I've researched the mechanics of removal and transfering to a hive body and I've watched the videos on this site. If I don't remove them they will be gassed. The building is surrounded by commercial orchards and I'm able to stand easily five feet from the hive without being "warned" so I'm thinking they are fairly calm and it's origin is from commercial hives. My questions are these; 1st is this a foolish thing to attempt for a novice or a good learning opportunity? Should I discard most, all or none of the honey? If I find it heavily mite infested should I destroy it or try to remediate it? I'm assuming it's best to requeen, if so should I wait or do so immediately? I appreciate any and all comments.
