This method is usually recommended because of them being beneficial to the ecosystem. To use this method you will need to call in a [post_name] beekeeper. During this process of bee removal, the queen bee and all the worker bees are moved into a box and then the hive is removed. This is done during the evening when the bees are less active and more bees are in the hive. When the hive is removed all of the honey and beeswax must be removed. If not other bees may be attracted to the area and you will face the same problem over again. What attract other bees are the lingering bee pheromones. The [post_name] beekeeper will move the bees to a new location and set up with a new hive.
To dispose of the beehive properly once all the bees are dead you can place it in a plastic garbage bag, tie it securely, and put in a garbage can with a tight lid. If you have an area where you can burn things you could also burn the hive. Once you have cleaned the area watch to make sure that no more bees try to build a hive or nest there. If you notice the start of a new nest or hive there, knock it down before it becomes a problem.
