Moving leaf cutter bees

Asked August 9, 2019, 10:47 PM EDT

I have a nest of leaf cutter bees in the space next to a vent on my house. Would you have any suggestion regarding a safe way to get them to move to a new location? I'm in the Denver area of Colorado. I attached a picture of the hole, I need to paint the house and would like to seal that space, but, don't want to harm the bees. Thanks for your help, Art
