Bees can ruin any day you want to spend outdoors with your family or work around your home. Not only are these pests annoying, but for many, their venom-filled stingers can trigger deadly allergic reactions.

Despite their contributions to the environment through pollination, bees are dangerous; we do not recommend combating these pests on your own.

Frequently Asked Questions About Bees
While the sight of swarming bees can be frightening, the knowledge behind why bees swarm can go a long way toward calming any panic, as well as giving an idea of what to do in case one of these clumps of resting bees is sighted.
Bees live in hives that consist of a queen, thousands of sterile workers, and a few male drones. The queen is the only reproductively viable female, and after she selects a colony she will spend the remainder of her life laying eggs and producing new workers for the hive.
When the hive becomes too large, the old queen will leave to find a new nest, leaving a new queen behind. A portion of the hive’s workers will accompany the old queen as she searches for a new location, acting as a guard.
While bees can usually fly for long distances without rest, queen bees are large and ungainly. The clumps of swarming bees occur when the worker bees accompany a resting queen. The swarm is not idle while this occurs, however–scouts will still be sent out to search for a suitable home.What attracts bees?
Having a swarm of bees is never a good thing for a homeowner or business. These foraging flying insects are drawn to the heat and their need to survive, and thus often drawn to human activity as they provide resources like water, flowering plants, garbage cans, and outdoor eating. Combine that with ample shelter under eaves, sheds, and play structures, and bees have everything they need to make a sustainable home on your property.
How should I handle a bee swarm?
If you find a bee swarm, the most important thing to do is leave it alone. While swarming bees are not particularly aggressive they will still sting when disturbed. DIY attempts at removal or destruction have ended poorly for all involved.
Additionally, if the bees in question are Africanized Honey Bees, they can be even more aggressive even when swarming. Swarming bees may be a startling sight, but they are a relatively benign part of the life cycle of a hive. If you have serious concerns about swarming bees, give PURCOR a call.

Don’t take chances with bees around your home. Bees are extremely protective of their colonies, and won’t hesitate to brandish their stingers if they feel threatened. Additionally, once a bee stings you, it releases pheromones that trigger and draw other bees to sting you.
