Closing hives?

Closing hives?

I think my bees may be suicidal. Every time I close up my hive after an inspection, they all want to hangout on the edge of the hive, or the part of the hivetop that is raised specifically so you DON'T crush them.No amount of smoke will move them, and using a bee brush or shaking the inner cover gets some of them off, but not all of them, and it pisses them off!

How do you get the bees away from the contact points? I'm sick of always killing like 10 or so bees when I close up a hive (still being build up from a nuc colony I bought).
