Hive mind, help with my bee problem
July 19, 2012 5:24 PM Subscribe
We are doing a construction/cleanout job on a townhome and found a bag of potting soil on the back patio. When we went to move it, it turned out to be full of bees! I can actually see honeycomb inside the bag. How can I relocate the bees without hurting them?

I left messages for some people who do "bee removal" but I think these are more along the lines of exterminators. I'd really like to just have them moved somewhere. It seems like there's a lot of people who do that, but none in my area.
The hive seems very self-contained in it's bag. If we just took a box and contained the whole thing in it and took it out to the woods somewhere, would the bees be ok?
