Pinellas Park Bee Removal - BIG External nest!

As we've been performing bee removals for over 15 years, we've seen lots of changes in honey bee behavior as the feral populations have shifted from mostly gentle European Honey Bees to often very defensive African subspecies of honey bees. Many call these Killer Bees, as they can certainly defend their colony with deadly force.

This is a photo of a honey bee nest and myself, posing for the camera! You may noticed that the bees are not attacking me in this picture, and many will assume that this means the colony is not an African or Killer Bee colony. In reality, these bees turned out to be extremely defensive, nearly covering my veil as I was working them, just showing how bees can seem to be gentle, and with what seems to be a small amount of provocation, they can turn mean as fire.

Please, do not attempt removals of bee nests such as this. We are Stinging Insect Entomologists, Certified Pest Control operators and Florida Registered Beekeepers. We take the stings so you don't have to! Call us at 1-800-343-5317 or schedule an appointment at our website,  ALLFloridaBeeRemoval.com
