Wild Honey Bee Hive

We just moved to our twenty-five acre, wooded, Smith Mountain Lake property early in the Winter of 2014. This Spring, 2015, we discovered a huge, very active and apparently healthy, honey bee hive. It is located in the base of a gigantic, healthy looking white pine. The problem - the hive is located next to a path, which leads to our dock. We will also be locating a boat house nearby. There are too many bees to be located this close to a lot of human activity. I have spoken to a couple of folks about removing the bees (as I understand the plight of the honey bee) however they are expensive endeavors. I would like to do what is right, but my husband is content just killing the bees, rather than to incur any expense to have them removed. Any suggestions? Or should I just allow my husband to exterminate them? Thank You.

kitchen ants

How to eradicate very small kitchen ants. In the past I used boric acid in sugar water, but it stopped working. Switched to Terro Liquid Ant Baits (borax) and it worked for one year. I live in the Blue Ridge Mts in the woods with a large fire brake around my home.
Suggestions?
Thanks, Mamajean
