Will bees migrate if location of nest is sealed off
Our neighbor sealed off cracks in a wall where bees were coming in and out of. They said they've had this issue for years and have decided to cement the cracks, effectively sealing any entrance to their colony. There is a large mass around the fence and I am wondering if they will leave on their own.
I had approached the neighbor about humanely removing them via a beekeeper and he said he had done that before but other bees just continue to enter the wall. It had gotten to the point where we could not be in our backyard.
My question is, will we still have to get a beekeeper to collect whatever they can?
