    Default A Strange Question...Is it possible?

    Hi, I am brand new to this forum, and to studying the aspect of bee keeping. We have a large hive in one of our Eucalyptus trees that we have enjoyed for years. However, the tree endangers our home and we must take it down. So here's my question: is there a way to move the bees into another location on our property and simply allow them to be. Is this possible? And if so, does anyone have a recommendation of what housing to purchase for them?

    Your Advice is Much Welcomed!

    search the bee removal section here on the forum, or check with a local bee club. I'm sure someone can help you save these bees. Yes they can be moved and transferred to another home.

    Actually if you are having a tree service cut the tree just have them save the section the hive is in. They should have a crane truck and they can lower the hive section to the ground without damaging it and you just stand it up, paint it and you have a living yard sculpture.

    Move the house and leave the bees alone
