A friend of mine called me about some bee hives at the local golf course that they want removed (the groundskeeper was stung 30+ times a couple of days ago). I went to look at them this morning, and all three hives are in tree cavities, from 1 - 5' above ground. Cutting the trees down is not an option, and two of them (pines) have small cracks that I cannot reach into. There is a cedar tree that appears to have a large opening (covered in poison ivy.....bummer). The highest hive (5') has been there for several years. Do any of you have suggestions for how to go about removing these bees?
