Let me start by saying I've never done either. This is my first call for bee removal that has actually been Honeybees!
The house is in an ' L ' shape and the bees are entering from the inside corner of the ' L'. They are climbing up the foundation behind the siding and going in between the the first floor joist. I ran a scope up behind the siding and can see them walking in along the top of the foundation, in a gap between 2 boards.
From inside the house they appear to tucked right in that corner. The homeowner does mind tearing out the Sheetrock ceiling a little to get to the hive, if that will even get me close enough?!
I'm considering trying the hogan trap out method to see if I can't get a lot of the bees out of the hive.
Not really sure... Any thoughts out there???
