I have received a call from a local golf course regarding some honeybees located in a tree trunk. They would like the bees removed from the tree, as they are bothering some of the golfers (and some of the golfers are bothering the bees ).
The bees are entering an opening which is barely big enough to reach your hand into. The tree is alive, and they do not want it damaged. It is in the bottom of the tree trunk, close to the ground. There would not be a way to reach into the tree to get the comb out.
What can be done to get the bees out of the tree? I would really appreciate any advice you all may have.
