alternatives to pesticides - bugs/pests - honeybee swarm

 

                                  honey bee

                            Actual size: 3/8” – 5/8”

The best way to remove a swarm of bees is to call a reputable bee keeper who can capture the queen bee in 20 to 30 minutes. The rest of the swarm will follow. Bees in a swarm are engorged with honey and pose very little stinging threat. WSU Cooperative Extension Office keeps a list of beekeepers willing to come get the swarm.
