Palm Bay Honey Bee Swarm Removal from Auto Salvage Yard

 Palm Bay Bee Swarm Removal

Bee swarm at Palm Bay Auto Salvage
This week, we have been getting many Bee Swarm calls in the Brevard County and Palm Bay area. Its a funny thing,  late winter is very slow for us, and we have to start getting ready, anywhere from  Mid-February thru Early April. 

Bees will start swarming sometime during this period, and once they do, it's Game ON!, with us receiving hundreds of calls a day!

A colony of honey bees can be likened to an organism, and the prime directive of organisms is to reproduce--and that is what a swarm is!! Bee colony reproduction! An existing colony sends out maybe 20,000 workers, drones and the queen, to go find a new place to build a colony and thrive.

Most of the time, but not always, these swarms are relatively docile, and are transitory, meaning they will leave in a few hours. Please, don't provoke them into a stinging incident, by self treating yourself. We are seeing more swarms that become defensive, and they can deliver hundreds of stings within a minute.  Give us a call, and we'll help you determine if you should have us remove them. In most cases, you won't have to do a thing, but wave as they leave!

Folks, If you have a honey bee swarm, please give us a call to discuss your options. You may need to do nothing but watch these wonderful critters for a day or so, before they find another, permanent site. Or, in some cases, it's best for us, The Stinging Insect Specialists to remove them for you. 

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.
