Bee swarms, in the Tampa Bay region, often elect to construct honeycombs on a tree limb or upon a structure. Exposed bee colonies present unique challenges not usually found with bees in wall voids or contained, protected from the elements. Since exposed beehives are vulnerable to predators, these bee colonies are exceptionally defensive of their nests. Additionally, honeycombs often become dislodged in high windy conditions, falling to the ground.
Disturbed honeybees often attack in large numbers ,sensing that surrounding people and animals have threatened them. Many times, there will be two issues to control—bees on the ground and bees remaining on comb remnants in the tree or structure.
Fallen honeycombs, from exposed bee colonies, pose an imminent danger. An issue, such as this, should be safely handled by contacting the professionals where bee craft has been a family tradition for over 50 years
