I've got a couple of hives in difficult places that need removal, one in a double brick wall and the other in a tree base. I am not allowed to remove bricks nor cut the tree down so from my understanding I can do a trapout, but I was wondering what peoples thoughts are on using Honey-b-gone to get the bees to abscond quickly?

I have found forced absconds much less than ideal. I`ve tried Honey-be-Gone + smoke and just heavy smoke. The H-b-G seemed to get airborne and coated the bees. If you can smoke one end and drive out the other it may work, in and out the same hole doesn't. It takes a very large amount of smoke.

I Doubt that it will work, and trap out & quickly should not be used in the same sentence:D
