Come spring, I'm thinking of removing some bees from a tree. This tree has a large entrance at the bottom. Not very good for a trap out cone. This tree is also in town, next to some apartments. I was wondering every ones thoughts about drilling a hole near what I think is the top of the chamber and smoking them out from the bottom, after I cover the bottom with wire mesh? I'm thinking this would allow the tree to live, and I could get the complete colony out within a day, so as to not bother the tenants. Please give me some good feedback ideas, agree or disagree.
