Honey bee issue
We have honey bees in our porch column that we cannot have removed. We had a professional bee keeper come to remove the bees but because of their location, he stated they could not be removed. We have tried plugging the hole in the column with spray foam insulation, caulk, steel wool, cement. They drill through all of it and continue to come back year after year. We have used natural repellants. We have tried plants that supposedly repel them. Nothing seems to work. The bee keeper told us that if we did not remove the honey comb from the column, the bees would continue to come back, even if we killed the queen bee. He said they would just "create/make" another queen and would continue to return. (Maybe not his exact words but you get the jest). We have been stung numerous times while trying to mow around the porch. So now I am wondering if maybe there is a way to put bee hives somewhere close and they would move there instead? We know NOTHING at all about bee keeping but if there is a way to get them to a bee hive instead of our porch column, we are willing to learn. We are running out of options. Any help or suggestions would be much appreciated.
