This sounds like a problem for a professional bee keeper! If the bees were completely removed the first time, they would not have returned the second time. I can only suggest you contact your local cooperative extension office (Texas Cooperative Extension, 200 Taylor St Suite 500, Fort Worth, TX 76102 phone (817) 884-1945 ) for assistance. They can recommend professional bee keepers and may even come out to see how best to fill the hollowed out area where the bees are living. You may have to fill it with concrete or mortar or at least attach some window screening as a physical barrier to the bees. Good luck with your project.
