We’re garage people, meaning that’s how we primarily enter and leave the house, take out the trash, bring in groceries, get the mail, etc. So on one of our infrequent excusions outside the front door of the house for the first time in months, we spotted a HUGE beehive down the wall looking remarkably similar to THIS one:
For a scale reference, I could hold a basketball next to it and the beehive’d be bigger than that.
The bees swarming are a nuisance, so much so I haven’t mowed the lawn this week. We need to remove it, SAEFLY, cheaply and qucikly. Exterminator estimates start at $200 and – we’d rather not.
Suggestions welcome. We’d like to preserve the honeycomb, if possible, but we’re not above using gasoline.
