    This works for wasps and some types of bees but take a paperbag, inflate it and hang it from a gutter.

    Bees are territorial and won't make a hive within so far of another hive. The inflated paper bag looks like a hive to most bees so they'll move on and nest somewhere else.

    I'll have to try the separate water thing if I can find the hive. Instead of a bird bath, I'll have a bee bath. LOL!
    hehe see how that works out. Maybe in his case you may need professional help in moving the hive, but why call someone if there's a way to figure it out yourself?

    Sorry, just catching up. It's pretty expensive to get a bee expert out and they can't do much unless you have a hive or a swarm. The bees aren't swarming and we never did find the hive. It may not even be located on our property.
    We ended up moving the water source for a few days to a different location and that seemed to work so far -knock on wood:)
    Thanks for the advice.

    Flytobecat.. Hope it stil is working. That is the only thing I found to work. Its pretty freaky to go out and find the water trough covered in bees . You could have a wild swarm around.

    It's still working so far. We had a couple hives when I was a kid. So I've seen bees when they swarm. These guys were just being opportunistic I think. After all we've got nice flowering trees and water close together, they probably thought it was a buffet.
