Is it permissible to remove a beehive if it’s attached to one's house?

It will be permissible to kill insects and bugs, such as bees if they cause harm.

Because bees can sting and beehives cause damage to property, it is permissible to exterminate them.

It is better to remove the beehive without killing them or in a manner which will not cause harm to the bees. (Al-Fatawa al-Hindiyya, Volume 5, Page 361).

Please consider contacting a professional to handle the matter in the best possible way.


Only Allah (SWT) knows best
