I hate that action although it is an option. Where does the honey go? Ants?Three choices. The third is to seal them in.
If a pest control company sends someone round, they must seal the entrance in any case as otherwise the poison they use could be taken to other bees' nests by robbers after the remaining honey.
Remember donnaleck, bees are not there to cause you harm and just want to about their business rearing their young - just as we do. They are unlikely to sting you for no reason and to see bees in the garden is a welcome sight. If you are worried, don't flap your arms about to shoo them away but just walk away calmly. Occasionally a colony will be bad-tempered but this is a rare event.
