Orlando Honey Bee Swarm Removal

Orlando Honey Bee Swarm
Our honey bee swarm season continues here in Orlando, and throughout Florida.

Honey bees live in a harmonious social structure that swells to maybe 50 THOUSAND adults during the spring blooming season. When colonies are bursting at the seam with such numbers, a swarm response occurs, where up to about half the colony's members will leave the nest in a coordinated issuance, flying around the nest area. The queen is coaxed to leave as well  and the whole group is herded by a dedicated corps of 'scouts', that guide them to a new location to build a new colony.

The sight of this swarming behaviour is frightening to many, but if one stays quiet and moves little, one can observe a wonder of the world, for it still entertains and sets this seasoned entomologist to wonder. Check out our some of our bee swarm pages and our honey bee swarm blog posts and pics here.

If you have a swarm of honey bees that just won't leave, contact us at our website or call at 1-800-343-5317 for expert bee removal services.
