When bees set up hives in the structure of your home or business they can become a nuisance. Killing the bees with pesticides or sealing the entrance will not always solve the problem. Yes the bees might be dead but the honey and the comb is still inside your structure and may cause problems in the future as the honey may seep out and stain interior finishes and or run out on the outside of your structure.

Greg, Thanks so much again for taking care of our bees and doing such an amazing efficient, humane and professional job. I will highly recommend your expertise and services to anyone in need... Also, thanks for the beautiful carpentry work on pulling apart and putting together the column. Looks better than the others now! It has been a pleasure having you work on our house with the column filled with bees. Photos will be sent soon...Gratefully,
Photos below were sent to me from Karen showing before during and the final painting of the repaired column.
Shown below a large hive I removed from the soffit of a home in the Denver area. These bees were very good tempered during the removal did not use any smoke after I opened up the soffit. Located the queen early in the removal hived her and the rest of the bees went with the comb into the new hive. I scraped and washed out the remaining honey and comb. Swept returning bees into a catch box as the foragers came back re-nailed the soffit and fascia caulked everything ready for paint.
The photo below hive is a under cantilevered second floor the bees were in the floor joists.This was a very simple removal and repair.
Honey bees are often blamed for most stings, but about 90% of all stings are likely caused by yellowjackets. CSU Extension
Africanized bees the below link describes these bees. “Colorado’s colder year-round climate appears to be the approximate boundary for their range,” said Whitney Cranshaw, a professor of entomology at Colorado State University. “Aside from reports of some testy bees, there have been none (of the Africanized strain) confirmed by lab in the state.”
Only about 1 percent of bee stings result in anaphylactic shock, with it more likely to happen in people over the age of 25. This is because the more an allergic person is stung, the more severe the reactions get.
Children, who likely have only been stung one or two times, will rarely experience such extreme reactions.
Why wasps are beneficial to your garden.
First of all adult wasps feed on nectar and pollinate your garden flowers. Adult wasps also are predators and prey on insects to feed their offspring. They collect many types of garden pests including black widow spiders and other insects that are pests in your garden. So before you grab that can of insecticide ask yourself is the nest of wasps truly causing a problem. Most wasps are not aggressive unless their nest is threatened or disturbed. Wasps foraging in your garden are not aggressive as they have nothing to defend and will not sting unless handled. There are places we do not want wasps near door ways or other areas where their nest are easily disturbed by humans. In some cases exposed nests can be relocated however nests in structures or ground dwelling wasps can not be relocated.
