Established bee hives can be aggressive as they will defend their hive. This can be difficult if they have made their home in your house wall, compost bin or a tree hollow. Look for an experienced beekeeper that is registered and insured, as they will need to open up the plaster etc to expose the hive. Physical access is needed to be able to effectively remove and relocate all of the bees, honey and honeycomb. If poison is used, or if not cleaned thoroughly (we recommend a 4 step cleaning process) another swarm will is attracted and will rehouse in the same location.
