I've been really interested in beekeeping but haven't started yet. I plan on putting a few hive bodies together throughout the winter and order some packages in the fall for the upcoming spring season. Because of my interest I've noticed bee's coming in and out of a hole about the size of a dime in the outside block wall of our basement. I know it would be to late to do anything with them this year, but would there be any way of coaxing them into a hive during the spring season. Also, is there any harm they can do to the basement walls of my house. One last thing, If there is a way to do this, without destroying the wall, are there any precautions i can take to ensure they will be safe for the winter and ready to go in the spring. Thanks for any replies. Frank
