A Lot of Buzz as Summer BeginsJanay Rickwalder

Bees are getting their 15 minutes of fame. Swarms have been
reported all over the country in some pretty unusual places, such
under trampolines, outside office buildings, and even in a
major league baseball dugout.
As the weather warms, bees expand their
colonies and search for new places to build their nests – often on
our property. Although a swarm can be frightening, bees are
actually quite docile unless they feel threatened. However, due to
the aggressive nature of certain bee species, sightings of a swarm
near homes or businesses should be immediately reported so a professional can
assess the situation and safely remove the bees.
