Re: Removing and established colony from a building.
These posts are giving you good advice IMO. The Youtube vids are set pieces and will lead you into deep water. Ohio, well maybe bees are nice there, here, in Houston they send you an email to bring help. The deconstruct problems aside bees get VERY angry when you start pulling their nest apart. Have a good smoker, very good suit Thickset vinyl gloves, a good vacuum and tools. I see vids where all the bees stay on the comb and am some amazed and a lot skeptical. Bees here simply jump off the comb, run everywhere and form a persistent cloud around you. I just finished my fourth cutout in three weeks, and they are tough, hot and messy. Maybe one day soon I will learn how. Good luck.
,Don't wear Levis, bees don't like dark colors. If you must, have them heavily starched because when stretched, like when squatting, bees can and do sting through them!
