Hanging the empty brood comb

Puget Sound Beekeepers Association

PSBA organizes a list of volunteer beekeepers that willing to remove honey bee swarms. Please note: while typical honey bee swarm reduction is free, elimination of other stinging bugs or cutouts frequently incurs a charge for the service mainly because are not standard honey-bee swarms. These removals need unique equipment and abilities provided by some individuals and professionals on the swarm number. Inquire about the fee.

So what does a honey-bee swarm appear to be?

Honey bee swarm on bush in West Seattle

Honey bees swarms may be down low on a bush or high up on a tree limb. There'll never be a built nest surrounding them, but instead a cluster of bees holding from a limb, branch or other object.

Are Swarms Dangerous?

Honey bee swarms are not dangerous, but unless you're a skilled beekeeper, please try not to try to disturb/displace the swarm. These bees are merely undergoing finding a unique home and beekeeper you call can give them just that, a nice hive in an effective area!

Please do not spray the bees w/ pesticides, insecticides and on occasion even water! Watch for a beekeeper to come and simply take them away. They're usually mild insects being a huge advantage into flowers we've inside our gardens and the foods we consume! The actual only real time you’ll encounter an angry bee (or other insect/animal for example) is when you disturb it.

Do worker bees kill drone bees for laziness? - Quora

Nah, they don't sting them to death just kick them out and don't let them back in. In early winter when bees go into winter mode they want to conserve as much energy and food as they can to make it through the winter. As the queen doesn't lay in the winter the drones have no usefulness so they kick them out into the cold. The hive is the organism and at that point those drones are only a drag.
The drones are bigger and make a much louder buzzing noise. When the ladies start kicking them out you can catch them and have a pet bee as they can't sting you.
