Bees live in colonies that contain the queen bee, the worker bee and the drone. The worker bee and the queen bee are both female, but only the queen bee can reproduce. All drones are male.
As part of the aggressive defence of their nests, bees will chase nest invaders for long distances so homeowners are advised not to address the infestation themselves. The bee sting is one of the most painful stings and swelling and irritation can last for days after you are stung.
Bees can be prevented through inspection of potential nesting areas and removal of potential nesting materials. If a hive is already detected our experts will determine whether the hive can be successfully removed and relocated, this being determined by where the hive is situated, or whether the hive needs to be destroyed.
