I recently relocated to a new address outside the city of Springfield and discovered a small hive of honeybees on the outside of the house next to my garage. I don't want to disturb them and could use some guidance as to how to safely relocate them.

Here's a link to the bee clubs and associations in Ohio. Most clubs keep a list of beekeepers who may be willing to help remove bees from structures for a fee. If it's a swarm, that's much easier.

Here's a factsheet on honey bees in house walls:
