Trying to get rid of bees in environmentally-friendly fashion [more inside]

Have a bee hive nesting in the wall of my house, and it is in a bad location that could potentially have lots of traffic. I'd like to move it and/or get rid of it. I called local exterminators; they'll use poison and then rip out the wall to clean out the honey. This is a last resort, because it somehow doesn't seem right to kill bees. Googling around revealed this method of getting rid of bees
, which is a) environmentally friendly, and b) has the bees move the honey to the new home — seems ideal! But, alas, it also seems too good to be true.
I guess my question is suggestions is for moving a bee hive in the most environmentally friendly (and, ideally, cheapest) way. Bonus points if I get to harvest any honey.
