I am sure the bees were a hassle, but did you think about calling in a beekeeper??

I have an old oak tree that needs to come down as it's pretty dead and where one limb came off, there is a hole filled with honeybees. We are in the process of having the hive relocated, maybe even to another part of our property.

The beekeeper explained that there is becoming a shortage of bees, and that this can have a huge impact on crops not becoming pollinated. There is a huge industry of bees being taken by truck around to fields and rotated to other fields for the purpose of pollinating. These bees are becoming harder to locate by farmers.

I am sure they were a pain to deal with, but if they return, call someone to take them away peacefully!
