“According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, bee, wasp, and hornet stings accounted for more animal-related deaths in the U.S. from 2001-2013 than any other animal,” cites a 2014 University of Virginia Healthcare article which goes on to say that honey bees have been observed as the most likely culprits when it comes to seeing patients for bee stings.
About 5 – 10% of the population will experience a more severe reaction to bee sting venom than the rest of the population and up to 3% of the population will experience what is most likely an unexpected anaphylactic reaction causing symptoms such as headaches, nausea, diarrhea, hives, dizziness, trouble breathing and associated symptoms. Many of these people will have never experienced a severe reaction to a bee sting before yet some of them will even have been stung before. The bottom line is that you don’t want this person to be you.
Bees are generally docile and will only harm you if you attempt to disrupt their home, which in the case of a bee swarm removal, can be an especially sticky situation for both you and the bees. A bee swarm occurs when a bee colony grows large enough that a second queen bee is hatched. Half of the worker bees will set out with the new queen bee to form a new hive of their own, and if they stumble upon a hollow tree or even a gap allowing them access into spaces inside your home, your home can quickly become their home if you don’t immediately ask for proper bee swarm removal. You won’t want to try to tackle this yourself for safety reasons. If you see a cluster of bees on your home or somewhere nearby, ask Florida Bee Removal to help with bee swarm removal for you in an environmentally-friendly and safe way.
