Are they honey bees?
🐝 🐝 🐝1. Are they coming from a hole in the ground?
🐝 🐝 🐝2. Are they Yellow and black?
🐝 🐝 🐝3. The nest is grey and made of paper, I can’t see the combs.
🐝 🐝 🐝4. The comb is hanging horizontally; I can see the “bees” crawling on the bottom.
🐝 🐝 🐝5. They are coming out from under the leaves at the base of my bushes.
🐝 🐝 🐝6. There are hundreds coming and going from a hole in my siding.
🐝 🐝 🐝7. It’s August and now when I walk past my bush (fence, wall, and deck) I get stung. I didn't do anything.
🐝 🐝 🐝8. I can see the combs and they are hanging vertically from the tree limb, or I look in the hole in the tree or siding and see yellow combs with thousands of brown bees. The combs are hanging vertically.
🐝 🐝 🐝9. There is a huge mass if bees building a nest in my tree. It’s the size of a football, and all I see is bees. Bingo you've got a swarm of bees.
