I've not seen them bother the hive but if they do...then I'll get busy on the electric fence. Relocating probably isn't an option....they just keep coming...we are in a heavily wooded area and animals live here. All of them are welcome in the yard.. it looks like a mine field from the Armadillos...even have wild hogs come thru once in awhile, turkey, a pair of Peacocks once...I'm a critter lover, you can tell if you've checked my blog. People move in...housing developments pop up...every tree cut down and then it's named "Black Hammock Reserve" or Forest or some other name that doesn't fit. No place left for them to go...I don't use pesticides, herbicides...don't even mow if it looks like something has a flower and a bee visits it. Oops...better get off my soap box.
