So, you've found bees in your tree, walls or out buildings. Now what? You and the bees can't all stay there together. Regardless of your generous feelings about bees, it is hard to share your living, work or recreational space with thousands of buzzing, stinging insects. There are quite a few things you need to know about these new guests. Although it may appear as if there are "only a few" of them, this is never the reality of a bee infestation.
The first sign of a bee problem will occur when a swarm arrives. A swarm of bees will consist of hundreds or thousands of bees, all bunched up together, often in the shape of a ball or man's beard. It will be affixed to a structure or overhang and be visible from the outside of the area. This swarm is simply a group of homeless bees, travelling or resting while searching for a space suitable to create their hive. While not specifically dangerous, a swarm will form an organized attack against anything, or anybody, they feel is a threat. It is very important to keep your distance from a swarm of bees.
Unless you happened to catch sight of this swarm upon arrival, the next likely sighting of bees may just be the sight of a few bees going in and out of a crack or gap into a structure. This represents that a colony (or family) of bees have formed a hive within that space and all live there together. A colony of bees is oftentimes hidden within a space which makes their numbers impossible to guess, but will likely be tens of thousands. These bees are far more likely to behave in an aggressive way as they are protecting their established hive complete with eggs and work product (honey). It is important to have these bees removed as soon as possible to avoid a much larger problem.
Regardless of the bees being in a swarm or part of an established colony, they will always fiercely protect the queen in their midst. It is never advisable to approach or disturb any group of bees unless you have the experience and safety gear to protect yourself.
