    New here to the forum and in need of advice. Spotted a bunch of bees entering a hole in the side of my house. Would hate to destroy them but can't let them live there. I am in northern Illinois and would welcome any help and advice. Regards Kirt

    I'm new too and have no advice, but your story reminds me of something similiar...

    Can't remember who was telling me but on a trip, think it was to Cuba, but doesn't matter, anyways, they ended up at the home of some poor family in the middle of nowhere. This family had just peeled back a section of the wall in their delapidated shack of a home to expose a large hive. The visitor was a bit surprised by the joy on the part of the family. What would have been a pest issue where they came from, was a wealth of honey and good fortune to this impoverished family.

    I'm not saying I'd keep bees in the walls of my house, either (although, actually, that would be a beautiful place for an observation hive), I just think it's a neat perspective

    Contact a local beekeeping club - they should be able to connect you with someone to help:
