Professional Leigh Honey Bee Nest Removal
Honey Bees live in colonies and each colony has one queen who lays all the eggs. At the height of summer, a colony consists of approximately 50,000 to 60,000 worker bees and perhaps 3,000 drones. By autumn the numbers will have reduced to between 5,000 and 8,000 worker bees, who will maintain the colony through the winter. Honey Bees gather pollen, water, and nectar from flowers and by doing so pollinate fruit, flowers, and crops. The pollen, water, and nectar they collect are used to make honey to feed their larvae and themselves.
Honey Bee Stings
Honey Bees can be aggressive, but will not sting unless threatened or aggravated. Honey Bees can only sting once and then die. This is because their stinger is barbed and the stinger is left in the skin and pulled from the Honey Bee. Bee stings can be a medical emergency if you are allergic to them and if bees are swarming multiple stings may be a possibility.
Care should be taken around bees
