Very little honey was found, which is typical for African Honey Bees(AHB), which are also popularly known as Killer Bees. I often get asked why AHB don't often make much honey. AHB are native to sub-saharhan Africa, where temperatures are mild, hence there is no need to put away a winter store of honey & pollen. AHB prefer to put the colony's energies into producing LOTS of brood, and then sending out multiple swarms/year to saturate the area with colonies.

Please, don't attempt a removal of bees, as they can be deadly, even swarms have attacked us since Killer Bees are now here. We've had fatalities occur in Florida because of improper stinging insect removal techniques. We perform bee removals for most of the utilities in the State of Florida.
