Professional Bollington Honey Bee Nest Removal
Honey bees are reasonably common in the UK during the spring and summer months and are known for their role in pollination and the production of honey. Although they can sting, honey bees are not a significant threat or concern to homes in most instances.
However, honey bees swarm, meaning that hundreds or even thousands of the bees can be in a relatively small area, posing a severe threat to health. In addition, they can form nests on or in households. In these instances, Bollington honey bee nest removal or honey bee control techniques are needed.
Appearance and Behaviour
At present, only one species of honey bee is commonly found in Europe. The honey bee differs from other bee types in appearance, as it is long, small and slim, somewhat resembling the formation of a wasp. They use a dance, known as a waggle dance, to communicate information to each other regarding resources.
Honey bees are highly social and form colonies, with as many as 50,000 bees living in the same nest. They are primarily known for their production of honey, which is used to feed their young and collected by humans. Additionally, worker bees secrete beeswax, which humans gather and utilise for many different purposes.
Swarms and Nests
Unlike other bee types, honey bees establish their nests as a swarm. Swarms consist of one mated queen and a vast number of worker bees. These worker bees scout the nesting site before establishing a wax comb and the nest then serves as a home to the colony, which can consist of 50,000 bees. Queens can live for up to four years.
The most obvious sign of a nest is many bees in the nearby area, but the nests themselves are not necessarily a problem. However, they become an issue if the nest is established on or near a home or if the bees begin to swarm in large numbers. This usually requires a professional honey bee swarm removal service.
