    Hi Lynne

    As long as they are honey bees, it seems that you have a swarm considering moving in. They will spend a few days exploring possible new sites and even guarding favoured ones. The expected swarm might not then materialise. The beekeeper may intervene, they may have a better place somewhere else, or maybe they will try to swarm in your direction but if the beekeeper has clipped a queen's wing they will not be be able to bring her and will return home.

    One thing that could be done - if you can find someone locally with the right stuff - is to use a spray called 'Bee-Go'. This is repellent to bees so can stop them moving in but usually once they have done so then only physical removal will fix the issue.

    You could try the local beekeeping association to see if anyone will help.

    hope this helps
