I will appreciate any help you can give. I am a property manager. I have a home in California with a hive problem. They started out in the chimney and moved into the attic.
I LOVE bees and do not want to kill them. I had a beekeeper come out and after a lot of trouble and a bill for $600, the bees were still there. I have tried everything to make them leave. I have been interested in bees myself for quite a while so I have a little bit of bee education.
The problem is that I rent this house to a family with several little ones and I am afraid to let this go on while I try to save the bees. My tenant has been very patient with me but they are scared to death of bees, so it has been hard for them.
I have had swarms at my home and office. I honestly just enjoy the time I have to study these little wonderful guys. I get my entire family in on it. I would let them stay but they never do!
Why do you suppose I cannot get the little buggers to leave my tenant alone? Is there bee repellent? How do I get rid of pheromones?
Thank you so much for taking the time to read my question(s). If you have any advice, I would be thrilled.
