Honey bees, although one of the most popular bees, represent only a small percent of bee species.
Honey bees are social creatures and live in colonies. However, they do display some aggressive behavior: drones are ejected from their nests during cold weather and a queen will sometimes sting other queens during mating flights.
Although honey bees serve a significant role in pollination and ecology, some species are known to swarm and attack humans and animals. Measures should be taken to ensure that hives do not exist in close proximity to your home. Always contact a pest control professional before attempting to address an infestation.
