Honeybees are extremely beneficial insects due to their role in pollination. It is estimated that honeybees pollinate more than 100 crops in the U.S.
Honeybees produce honey from pollen and nectar of the plants they pollinate. They store the honey in honeycombs in their nests. The honey they produce not only feeds their young in colder months, but provides humans with a tasty nectar.
Honeybees often build their nests in tree crevices, but will occasionally build nests in attics or chimneys. Removal of a honeybee nest and the honey product can be very messy, therefore their removal should be addressed by a professional. Because honeybee colonies are so large, only a pest control professional or experienced beekeeper can safely remove a honeybee nest.
Fun fact! The honeybee is the only social insect whose colony can survive many years.
