You need to kill the queen. Smoke works on these just as other bees….they are also dormant at night. I ran into a hive while working on a floor repair job…they were pretty well entrenched in the floor joists…..the owner hired a bee person…thinking that he/she could get them out and put them in a hive….as soon as the bee person saw them…said they were carpenters and had no interest in capturing them (don’t know if that was just to get more money?).....she paid the extra amount…and the bee person removed the queen….the rest of the bees will leave or die without a queen.
