IMG_4207.JPG

Honey bees are the beneficial insects of all time. They are responsible for feeding the 7.13 billion people that inhabit planet earth. That's a pretty good reason to protect them were possible. Sometimes they become a problem to home owners when the take up residence in places that they should not be, such as soffits, wall voids, and landscape. They usually present themselves during the Spring when they are making new colonies. You may see a ball of bees hanging off a branch in the yard. This is a new queen bee and a bunch of worker bees that are ready to start a colony. This "bee ball" is usually not aggressive and can be removed by a qualified bee keeper. Don't attempt to spray the ball with insecticide. SAVE THE BEES.
