Also I know there was a honey bee shortage a while ago does this mean they are protected now and I have to just leave it bee? (haha I know I spelled 'be' wrong, I was making a funny). Does anybody know?
Or do I just call an exterminator and have them take care of it? The hive is HUGE and about 20-50 feet up on the ground it looks like the size of a basketball. My tree buzzes in the spring and summer and the bees are ridiculous, any ideas?
