If a swarm of honeybees arrives in your garden or somewhere on your property the best advice is “leave them alone and they will leave you alone”. Bees do not like vibration or other physical disturbance. If you see a swarm of bees hanging off a branch of a tree they will not harm you unless you do something silly like shake the tree or throw a stick at them! In many cases a swarm of bees will only stay in such a location for a short time – sometimes for as little as an hour – before moving on. The British Beekeepers Association website www.bbka.org.uk has a list of beekeepers local to you who are available to collect and re-home swarms of honeybees (NB they may charge you for this).
Bees are important to the ecosystem because they provide pollen to plants, which is essential for plant reproduction. However, when bees build a hive near your home, they can become a danger to you and your family. They are known for being voracious defenders of their hives and will attack if they sense a threat. For those who have allergies to bee stings, living in close proximity to a nest can be dangerous and even life-threatening. Bees don’t like vibrations or any other physical disturbance. If you spot a nest, it’s best you don’t go near it. Instead, call 3 Counties Pest Control immediately.
