Default Re: Honey Bee Hive on my car - Now what?

HI There,
Have seen this issue. They can easily be pushed away with smoke. Light a small fire with wood and allow the smoke to be close to this. Suggest you keep your face covered with a net if you have or a muslin cloth.
HIT spray for mosquitos also works on them if they haven't formed a hive but that wud be cruelty hence don't suggest it until a dire need

Best wishes

Good to hear they are back, but hope not with Vengeance

DIY Bee Spray

For a natural way to deter bees, consider making your own bee spray.
Bees are naturally attracted to sweet smells, like fruit, honey and floral perfumes. They’re also deterred by certain smells, mainly peppermint and cinnamon.
To make a repellent spray:
  • Mix 1 drop peppermint oil, tea tree oil, or cinnamon oil (or all three) with 1 cup unscented baby shampoo.
  • Pour the mixture into an empty spray bottle.
  • Spray all areas you want to keep bees away from.
Place Cinnamon

Another alternative bee repelling method is to sprinkle ground cinnamon around the hive for at least a week. The smell will deter the bees, and may cause them to relocate their hive.
