Africanized honey bees in the central Arizona and Phoenix area are a great deal more aggressive than your average European Honey Bees and can become very dangerous if not properly dealt with. Africanized honey bees are still beneficial to the environment no matter how aggressive towards intruders they are. In some cases, the bees can be captured, relocated and re-queened to produce a much less aggressive honey bee. It's hard to decipher if feral bee swarms are going to be aggressive or not and this becomes a problem for beekeepers.
Due to tight quarter housing and highly populated areas, capturing and relocating an established Africanized bee colony within the city just can't be done due to safety concerns. This means the bees have to be treated in a way so that you or none of your neighbors or pets get attacked by the bees during the treatment. Phoenix Bee Removal has the capabilities and skills needed to deal with Africanized Bees without anyone getting hurt.
Don't fall for the scare tactics and think an Africanized bee colony that has just arrived is looking to hurt someone. There is no way to tell if a migrating swarm is Africanized or not until the become established. Same rules apply with any bee encounter in Arizona. Stay clear of the bees and give us a call to get some professional advice. If you have a hive on your property and are not sure how long they have been there. This is where it becomes much more dangerous and can lead to an unprovoked attack. They were there before you noticed them and didn't hurt anyone so there is no need to panic just stay away and give us a call.
If you have an active bee hive and are not sure how long they have been around this is where it can become a lot more dangerous. They were there before you noticed them and didn't hurt anyone so there is no need to panic just stay calm and clear and give us a call. Let other know the bees are there and not to go near them. Bees improperly treated with stuff bought at their local hardware store has lead to dozens of injuries and sometimes even death every year in Phoenix.
Please call a professional for advice when dealing with any feral honey bee swarms or established hives. Trying to treat bees yourself or sealing them in with a can of foam is dangerous and can lead to injuries and an even bigger problem.
Honeybee swarms have a completely different temperament than an established bee colony. If you have just noticed a bee swarm on a tree branch, bush or shrub around your house. 90% of the time they are just resting up and will be moving along shortly.
They are just on their way to find a new home and need some time and rest to do so. Bee swarms in Arizona are not the same as the swarms in the Mid-West and Far Eastern states in the U.S., bees travel a lot further when migrating in Arizona compared to some of the Eastern states.
Bees start sending out swarms in Phoenix around the beginning of March and continue thru November. The heaviest times are normally March thru June depending on the weather in central Arizona.
Swarms, for the most part, are not aggressive when left alone. A majority of the time it is not necessary to have a swarm removed or killed. Simply leaving them alone and letting them do their thing will save not only the bees but save you some money as well.
Companies like to take advantage of the swarm season and like to use fear to crank up their prices. The most common practice is simply to say they are Africanized and they will attack anyone and everyone around. That is simply not true of a migrating bee swarm in Arizona. There is no way to tell with the naked eye whether or not bees are Africanized or European or a hybrid and to what extent.
We've all seen the stories in the media about someone being attacked by a swarm of bees. This causes a lot of confusion between migrating swarms and established bee colonies. These attacks happen by established bee colonies. Usually by someone who went off trail hiking or just someone doing yard work using power tools. The most common way are by people trying to treat the bees themselves. Migrating swarms are not as dangerous as they are made out to be. Just stay calm and call around and get some information from a professional about your situation.
The short answer is no. Capturing and relocating a bee swarm will cause a lot of stress for the bees and most will not make the relocation alive. Letting the bees move on naturally will cause them the least amount of stress and ensure they have a safe journey to their new home.
When bees start to swarm they like to land in trees to rest up and wait for orders from the Queen on where and when to go. This often looks like a giant basketball size of bees which is quite often mistaken for an active hive. A honey bee swarm can consist of thousand's of bee's and be very intimidating when they arrive as well as when they leave. It all happens within minutes.
If possible leave them alone for 24 to 72 hours and they will fly away on their own. Keep an eye on your property to make sure they don't move into or on any structures. The Queen has just decided to rest up for a bit and your tree has become a motel for a few hours or even days. This does not mean that the bees will move into your home or even your neighbors home. If the bees decide to stay longer than 4 days they need be removed.
If they land on the structure of your home and there is visible honeycomb then they do need to be treated or removed. If you have a swarm on your property and are concerned someone might antagonize the bees or that the bees might be a danger to the public then give us a call and we will talk you through your options to getting your problem resolved.
