busy bees

A queen bee has taken up residence in a barrel of straw that has been standing on the back porch, and her followers now buzz in and out all day long. I'm not averse to giving up the straw for a hive but the bees are too close for comfort. The back door is about six feet away. Walking through a cloud of agitated bees gets everyone agitated. What to do, what to do?
