We love honeybees and take great care in removing their colonies from homes and relocating them. You would be surprised at the size of some colonies that we come across—hello honey!!
PictureHoneybee

Honeybees– have fuzzy bodies with narrow stripes on their abdomen.  They are gentle unless threatened and will die after they sting. These bees can make their hives inside walls and floors, attics, chimneys, trees, and other cavities, and can contain over 50,000 individuals! Honeybees are fascinating insects in many ways.
