    A bee hive has set itself up in a cavity of my parent's home.
    They are busily coming to and fro and you can hear the bustle of the hive from inside the house.
    Only problem is how do you get rid of them from that location without harm.
    There is a small gap in a junction of the weatherboards and you can hear them in the cavity of the inside walls.

    Thank you in advance

    Hi Pink Angel,

    There is a very similar thread in this forum that you could search for.

    A simple method is, at night, pour in petrol, seal the entrance and get far away. They will be cactus by morning. Otherwise get a bee remover in.

    regards

    I would not try to kill the bees or deter them from living there.. have a look and you will find someone willing to come and remove them for you.
    https://www.beekeepers.org.au/bee_removal.html It may cost some $$ to get them removed but it is better than killing the bees.

    Hello

    Tim Malfroy - Malfroy's Gold - will be able to offer you the best advice.
    You will want a really good beekeeper to help you remove them so that they can set up a happy home somewhere else.

    I have talked her into keeping the bees in her home for the time being. They are on the side of the house that does not get used.
    The only problem is that they keep my dad up at night. Apparently there is quite a din going on in the cavity of the walls even at night.
