Have a Honey Bee Swarm?

Have a Honey Bee Swarm?

If you see a honey bee swarm or have found a colony on your property, first you need to make sure they are actually honey bees. You may have yellow jacket wasps or other types of bees

Honeybee

Visits flowers for nectar and pollen. Not interested in people food.

YellowJacket.jpg

Yellowjacket Wasp

Carnivorous wasp that visits your picnics. Nests in cavities and in the ground

Bumblebee

Also visits flowers for nectar and pollen. Lives in the ground in smaller colonies than honeybees.

Honey bee swarms are not aggressive. They are actually custered together until they find a new home. You can read more about swarms in our blog At The Bee Farm and in this post on Treehugger
