We may be approaching the end of the summer, but with the unpredictable weather, many insects are still flying around in search for food and shelter. One of the insects which we are still seeing during the warmer days are bees. There are over 250 species within the UK with most common type being the Honey bee and Bumblebee. Although bees are harmless unless they feel threatened they can be a nuisance within your home and garden especially if you have a young family. If you suspect you have problems with bees in your home or garden, you need to contact pest control service experts, such as Kill Line, based in the North East of England.
The Honey bee are extraordinary creatures and are on the verge of becoming a endangered species, we have gathered up some amazing facts about the honey bee.
The Honey bee has been around for thousands of years and are harmless to humans, unless they feel threatened and they are the only insect in the world which produces food for humans, honey.
Bees live in a colony which consists of anything between 20,000 to 60,000 bees and one queen. The worker honey bees are all female and they do all of the hard work collection pollen and nectar from flower and only live for around six weeks, whilst the male drones reproduce; the queen bee can lay up to 2,500 eggs a day when she is at her peak in the summer as this is the busiest time for all bees. Bees will return to the same hive, year on year, minus the queen bee, she usually passes the nest on to her daughter and the previous queen will start a new colony with a new swarm of bees. If you have a bee problems in the North East, you need to contact a professional pest control service such as Kill Line.
