A friend let me know about a bee hive that was discovered when they were having an ash tree down. I went to take a look at it today. The section of the trunk the hive is in is to large for me to move. I don't have a way to cut it into a smaller piece and the homeowner didn't seem very thrilled at that idea anyway.

Is there another way to lure these bees out of there? I'm assuming they are distressed and would be looking for a new home? If I place a hive body or a swarm trap near the tree is there any chance they would move on their own?
