Humans have been extracting honey and beeswax from wild beehives for hundreds of years. Wild honeybees build hives and harvest honey in hollow trees, old logs, rock caves, or between walls in houses or barns. Accessing the wax honeycombs require destroying the wild hive, leaving 30,000 to 50,000 homeless honeybees, so consider contacting a local beekeeping association, and ask about relocating the colony before extracting the honey. Otherwise, prepare for angry bees by wearing long gloves and protective clothing to reduce bee stings.
