We have a deer blind that is on a metal stand that sits 20 feet off the ground. The blind is wood and has an insulated floor frame. The roof over hangs the sides about 15 inches. There are bees inside the floor frame and a HUGE honey comb full of bees hanging outside the blind just under the roof eve. The honey comb is about 2 foot wide by 3 foot long and a foot thick and covered in bees. We want to save the metal stand but we don't need the blind anymore. What would you do to get rid of them?

Locate a bee keeper in the area and have them come get the hive.

Yep, way too many bees for you to do it yourself.

Got the makings right there for your own bee/honey operation and setting up for ag exemption. Find a beekeeper that I'm sure would help you out on the removal as others have said

Plus the location (height) is a big complication, may try the sheriffs office, many have a list of beekeepers for swarm removal. What county is this in? If am am close enough, I'd take a look.


BTW, living as they are and in good numbers, makes them likely great bees since they have proven they can survive the new threats bees face now, they would be great stock to have in an apiary as long as they arent Africanized.

You may have to forego that stand this year and hope they relocate.

With only reading the header, the first and only thought that popped in my head was burn it to the ground. After reading it all same conclusion.
