Hi every one, I have some friends who have a bee colony in their fort they don't want them there and I really want a new hive, how would i go about removing them, i have never done it before.

Any replies would be appreciated, Thanks!!!

Wow, I wouldn't take lessons from some of those guys, the cutting on the structures may have been clean but the handling of the bees and the products of the hive seemed barbaric? I handle the comb gently, keeping honey and brood comb seperate, gently placing it in containaers that I later use for the bees.
