|Winter Park External Honey Bee Nest in Tree|
These numbers of nests heralded a new era in feral honey bee management, as these critters can exhibit drastically different behavior than their gentle European bee cousins. For instance, minor disturbances, such as a squirrel running across the tree branch, can cause these bees to fan out over hundreds of feet, looking for the perceived intruders. Once found, these guard bees can sting, leaving their stingers embedded within the victim. The stingers exude alarm pheromone, wafting into the air, providing a target path for up to 50,000 other nest-mates to quickly attack the now hapless victim. Immense pain, unconsciousness and death can be the quick result.
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.
