If you’ve spotted a hive or swarm, one call to us and our Crosby honey bee nest removal professionals will deal with it in no time.
A honey bee’s sting
The honey bee will sting when harmed or defending its nest, delivering venom as it attacks, which can cause pain, swelling and sometimes allergic reactions. Specifically, it is the worker bees of a hive that will, in effect, sacrifice themselves whilst attacking a threat, as their stinger is barbed and will break off.
Besides worker bees, the other caste within a colony that can sting is the queen. They have a stinger that is not barbed and can, therefore, attack repeatedly.
A queen’s dominance over her colony
Despite honey bee colonies normally consisting of many thousands of workers and drones, the queen will still have overall control of their behaviour and the eggs that are laid. This is because they can release pheromones that control certain actions in worker bees, such as what to feed larvae that will influence their development; fertilised larvae will morph into queens if they are fed royal jelly throughout their growth period.
Signs of a honey bee infestation
• Worker bees will often exit a hive in search of pollen and nectar, before returning to feed larvae. Therefore, if you see any honey bees passing in-and-out of a hole, there is likely to be a hive present.
• Male drones, during late summer, will congregate outside a nest whilst waiting for a mate, which is a sign of a honey bee control issue.
• You may hear the collective buzzing of many thousands of bees within a hive if close enough.
