Bees in our garden

It's warm and of course all the trees are blossoming. The bees are busy making honey, but more importantly, many are swarming and making clusters to start new hives. One swarm decided to start a hive in our front yard sprinkler system box. This box is not in use as we've turned off the system for the winter months, but now we're wondering what we should do with these bees. I've contacted a local bee club to see if these bees might be AHBs (Africanized Honey Bees) but they told us if they were, they would be attacking you if you were close enough to take that picture. of the box. We are considering learning how to keep a hive. Does anyone know how?
