BUZZING WITH BEES
If you have a bees nest you will probably see them entering a hole in the ground, wall or roof. You might notice bees buzzing around your house and on wet days if you check inside the holes you might see them sheltering from the rain. Bees are non aggressive and safe around children.
DEALING WITH BEES
There are many species of bee, therefore care should taken in Identification before any plan of action undertaken, usually most colonies can simply be left to carry out their good work. Occasionally relocation will be necessary due to health and safety related concerns. With Honeybees, we work closely with local beekeepers to re-home bees to more suitable locations whenever possible.
HOW TO IDENTIFY
Honey Bees have a slender body and can look wasp-like, with a pointed abdomen tip. The body is moderately hairy with brown and black striped colouring.
Bumble Bees are more broad and robust with a rounded abdomen tip. Colours vary depending on the species but will be a block colour rather than striped.
