HAVE BEES - NOW WHAT?
panic. A swarm of bees looking for a hive site looks impressive, but swarming bees very rarely
Call local beekeepers first.
If the swarm is hanging on a branch, usually the beekeeper will
simply shake the glob of bees into a box. The bees will buzz around madly, but are unlikely to sting unless you whack at them.
If you have an established hive in a wall, attic or crawl-space,
DO NOT simply spray the bees with bug spray. That leaves all the honey
(and dead bees) in place. The dead bees stink and the honey
attracts more bees and huge amounts of ants. The bees, honey, and hive will all need to be removed, and it's not a job for amateurs.
Call a beekeeper. Not only will they be happy to remove the bees but you could also be saving an endangered species. Honey bees are disappearing rapidly, and without them to pollinate, every plant on Earth may be affected negatively.
