More Orlando Bees in a Tree Hole

These Orlando Honey Bees were stinging the lawn crews as they performed lawn maintenance and even went after the mail delivery trucks!

It's likely these are AHB or Killer Bees, as we are seeing more Africanized Honey Bee genetics spreading throughout Central Florida.

Sometimes folks want us to relocate bees that are in tree holes and have a hard time understanding that there is really no way to save a colony if it's residing inside the tree hollow....unless one is willing to cut the tree down!

Please, if you have a bee colony in a tree hole, or anywhere, don't attempt a removal yourself. Call the Stinging Insect Specialists at 1-800-343-5317 or 321-206-5100 in Central Florida.
