Hello everyone, I found this site after looking for some answers to a little problem of mine. I am building a home in SW Washington, It's a reclaimed timber frame barn hence the name Barnman. I have a wonderful wife and two wonderful boys that love our new home and love helping their daddy work on the house. We are building this timber frame barn home on 20 acres, lots of room for future garden, orchard, and of course all the animals to provide food for the family.
We haven't even moved in yet and we ended up with a huge bee nest up in the prow of the barn. I have left it there and don't want to harm it, but I really don't like it in my house, so I'm trying to find someone that could help me move the colony out of the house and into some hives that we could start.
I have heard of the potentially disastrous situation that the bee populations are incurring, I want to help in my own way and also have the benefits for our orchard and garden we will be planting this coming year.
Thanks for any help anybody can offer.
