    Bees will come back home unless you move them about 3 miles/5 km, so just getting them out isn't going to do the trick. Can you try smoking them out so they all, queen included, decide it isn't a safe place any more? It's best to get a knowledgeable beekeeper to do this as they will be able to catch the swarm and rehouse it in a proper hive somewhere it can be put to good use and not be a problem to anyone else.

    What beautiful pictures. Bees are amazing. However, I can see why you wouldn't be necessarily feeling the same way, Jase.

    Jase, I feel for you - bees in a house is a (costly) nightmare. The fact that you have already leased this property also leaves you susceptible to a host of legal problems.

    To be fully rid of the bees you must remove the honeycomb. I'm really surprised your bee removal service did not appear to be aware of this and I would be chasing them for a refund. You will need to source quotes for a structural bee removal which is a specialised service. However, if you have landlord's insurance, you can claim this as an expense.

    If you are unable to do this then you will have to evict your tenants.

    I guess it is a compliment that bees would consider your house a worthy place to call home! Obviously chemical free, with enough available food....
