This morning a cast swarm took up lodging in a hole in the wall of a barn next to my apiary. I am pretty certain they are not mine. Last year a swarm did the same thing but died within a couple of weeks. There is no way I can extract the swarm. The barn's new owner is not going to be a happy man as conversion is currently underway to incorporate it in his dwelling. How can I reluctantly kill the bees ASAP. The barn is built of mud and the hole about 4 cm diameter 2m from the ground.:eek:

Ermm you might be able to vacum them out if there is power, some people have those funky hoovers specifically designed to hover up bees without killing them. A sad decision to make though.
