I have a hive of ground bees that have taken up residence next to one of my
blueberry bushes. How can I remove them in the least invasive way possible
without disturbing or poisoning my bush? Help! Thank you.

Please consult your local beekeeper club/society to help remove the beehive (at night) without damaging the blueberry bush.
National Beekeepers Assn executive and branches:
- Spill petrol on the ground, this will kill the bees, but also the blueberries
- Constantly dripping water above the hive and bushes. Bees donít like wet.
- Bring in some horse stable smell - bees donít like it.
