Got bees?

Swarms

When a hive gets too big the queen and about half of the bees in a colony leave to find a new home. This usually happens in spring and early summer. The bees cluster around the queen and cling together, usually on a tree branch. These bees are fairly docile because they have no hive to defend.

Colonies

Bees are opportunistic when looking for a new home. A cavity in a hollow tree is their natural home but houses and barns also make great bee homes.

Removal of bees from a building requires removing siding, capturing the bees. and hopefully the queen. All of  the honey comb, honey and brood comb must be removed to avoid bug infestations.
