Swarm or Hive?

 Knowing whether you're seeing a swarm or a hive will help you describe them when you call us.  Are the bees coming in and out of a structure?  If so, it's a hive.   Or, are you just seeing a mass of bees?  If so, it's a swarm: bees looking for a new place to settle in and build a hive.

Swarming Bees 

Don't Exterminate!  Swarming bees aren't dangerous, nor are they typically aggressive - because they do not have brood (eggs/larva) or food resources to defend.  They're just looking for a place to call home!   However, public concerns over locations of swarm points (personal residences, schools, day care centers, senior centers, etc.) are understandable.  Here at Eco-Safe, we want to gently remove the swarm and relocate it to a safe and sustainable area... so the bees can establish their new hive!

This is not a hive, it is a swarm of bees in a tree!

Hiving Bees  

Hiving bees are bees that have found their spot. Once in hive you will either see the hive and/ or you will notice bees flying in and out of structure, tree - wherever their hive is located. Hives outside of structures are the optimal hives for relocation.
