I went out there last night with the intention of moving the post. That did not happen. I have detailed it in my latest blog. But I do have a very doable plan!

At last the bees are at the house. Unfortunately, they are still in the post but out of danger.
For all the fascinating details, check out my blog.

I would see if you could rent a large plumbing pipe cutter somewhere and just cut it somewhat close to the ground and haul it home as others mentioned upright. The pipe cutter will not agitate the bees.
