What to do if you see a swarm?
Swarms of bees or more common as you move away from the winter months, and continues through early summer. This phenomenon occurs when a colony grows too large, and the colony divides. Then, they embark on a journey to establish their own hive. The first thing to note is that if you stay calm, you will likely remain unharmed. Honey Bees aren’t aggressive and will only attack if they are provoked or feel threatened. However, if you are attacked by a swarm, run away. This is one time where staying still and calm is a bad idea. When bees sting they release a chemical, that may summon other bees. A swarm can cause a lot of damage to you, so make your exit before they arrive. If you see a swarm of bees you can wait for them to move on and continue looking for their new home, or you can call Little Giant Beekeepers. We can safely collect them and move them into the new home they were searching for.
What to do if you get stung by a bee, hornet, or wasp?
In the unfortunate event that bee stings you, wash the area with soap and water. If the stinger is still embedded in your skin remove it carefully using either gauze or a fingernail (not tweezers). Apply ice to reduce swelling and try your best not to scratch.
