A home owner contacted me with a bee colony in his retaining wall. I would not think there is much space for them to build comb in this situation. The only way I know to get to the bees is to dig down to them. But not knowing the space they are in, I would think digging would possibly cave in the space and make a mess of the comb and possibly bury half the bees with it.
I was thinking maybe a trap out would work better. It would be fairly easy to set up.
In the picture below the bees are coming and going through the dark gap near the bottom just left of center.

Any thoughts or opinions? OR anybody have experience with digging for bees?
Thanks for any help...
