In a wall, in a tree, in the eave of a roof, honeybees often look for new homes and can pick yours! Aside from the inconvenience and discomfort of sharing your home with a swarming insect, honeybees and other swarming insects can cause serious damage to your house, inside and out. Bees should only be treated by a licensed professional. It is not recommended for a homeowner to attempt to treat any hive or swarm. Africanized bees are very easily agitated. They can be aggravated by loud noises such as lawn mowers and they fiercely defend their hives and attack very aggressively. The honey bee is not as aggressive but only an expert can distinguish a honey bee from an Africanized bee.
