Pinellas County Honey Bee Nest in Tree

Pinellas County Honey Bee Nest in Tree

We get many calls about Honey bee nests that are attached to tree branches and not inside a tree hole. Usually, these are Africanized Honey Bees( AHB or 'Killer Bees' in popular lexicon)

Such nests are dangerous if disturbed, or if they fall to the ground.and should be removed as soon as possible

The origins of wild honey bees found in Florida, are often comprised of Africanized Honey Bee sources. When a nest is newly formed it may be considered gentle and nearly non-defensive. But as the nest grows larger, the bees become more defensive and are often sonsidered 'mean'. We've had many clients experience mass stinging events when they are mowing, edging or some other activity that did not provoke stinging just a few days before. AHB can send thousands of Stinging workers to the percieved animal or human threat. Our European Honey Bees that are managed by beekeepers respond with only a few stinging workers
