Queen bee has taken up shop in my letterbox, what should I do?

We are grateful you are here

Queen bee has taken up shop in my letterbox, what should I do?

I came outside this morning to get the letter out of my letterbox and was met with about 100 bees swarming around it, all going towards a hole in the bottom of my letterbox. I think it's safe to assume that a queen bee decided that my letterbox would make a perfect hive, which obviously isn't that great for me, lol. My letterbox is located right next to an alleyway that leads to a park, so a lot of people have to walk straight past it to get to and from the park, so it's in a very bad spot and I don't want anyone to get hurt because of it.

What should I do? I've already asked around in community groups for beekeepers but I'm not sure if my Dad would have the patience to wait for one and he might go for an exterminator instead, and I'd obviously rather not have them all killed.

The bees look smaller than the usual bees I see? But that could just be because I don't want to get close enough to them to have a proper look.

Any advice is appreciated, thanks

I'm located in Perth, Western Australia if that helps.
