How do you know they are honey bees?
Honey bees are golden brown in color. They are a little bit fuzzy with stripes on their abdomen.
(See photos below) They will be in a cluster (or look like a ball of bees) under a picnic table,
on a fence post, on a tree branch or any number of places.
They may have made a hive in the walls of your house or garage too.
They do not form a paper nest of any sort. Those are wasps.
None of our beekeepers are interested in removing those.
You will have to call an exterminator for wasps.
If you find a swarm of bees it is important to contact a beekeeper immediately!
Do not spray them with any type of insecticide! And don't wait!!!
