The problem with a trap out is that all the larvae, nectar, honey, and dying bees that are left in the structure will start to rot and smell like the dickens in a short amount of time.
Not to mention all the new bugs and rodents that will move in to have a free meal.
It can take several months for a trap out to be successful and it may never be successful (queen removal).
The best way is to remove everything. It's not real difficult to repair most eves. Best to call a local beekeeper to perform a total removal.

Beetle, if you want to get into it, hang out/help someone who knows how to do cutouts while they work. Quickest way to learn, & it's hands on.

If a trap out is done properly you can get all the bees and stores out leaving only empty comb. if you are not sure you have them all leave the entrance open for a while and allow it to be robbed. After all the bees are gone use an insecticide duster to dust Powdered Borax into the hive and the bees will never return.

Depending on the size of the hive, you and the home owner will have to have your patience pants/dress on for this. Never? :D and the rodents & wax moths? What if it gets hot enough (ex. Hive under/following roof line),, for the wax to melt?

NEVER. Powdered borax being an element does not decay and remains until removed, IT is a natural insect repellent and preservative and will even keep out wax moths, beetles, flies and some mammalians It is the best option if you cannot tear down the wall or structure. I never said it was optimal.
