African Honey Bees Still Swarm

This is something that we see, or hope to see after we finish a job. We performed a bee removal from a water meter for the city of St. Petersburg, Fla. Africanized Honey Bees, aka Killer Bees or AHB, prefer to nest in or near the ground, and water meters are a very popular spot for them.

Saint Petersburg, Fl., Bee Removal from a water meter

After we perform the removals, we place a warning sign, and the bees clustered on the sign! Bees will cluster when their colony is disturbed, at least that's what 'normal' bees will do. They are simply regrouping and figuring out what to do next.

But here's the kicker: We are finding that many killer bees (AHB) will not cluster, instead, remaining aloft in a disturbed, defensive position. This makes our job of protecting the public and pets much more difficult, and YOUR choice of a suitable bee removal firm that much more important!
