Bees life

Bees are very important for our environment

 Bees are insects with wings closely related to wasps and ants, known for their role in pollination in the case of the best-known bee species, that same as the western honey bee for producing honey. They are three types of honey bees in a hive: Queens (eggs-producers), workers (non-reproducing females) and drones (males whose main duty is to find and mate with a queen)! Unlike the worker bees the drones do not sting.

A colony may typically consist of tens of thousands of individuals! The best known honey bee is the western honey bee (Apis mellifera), which has been domesticated for honey production and crop pollination; the only other domesticated bee is the eastern honey bee (Apis cerana), which occurs in South Asia. There are other types of related bees produce and store honey and have been kept by humans for that purpose, but only members of the genus Apis are true honey bees.

Honeybees are known for their incredible efficiency, one that is impossible for man to imitate! Bees are highly organized and each bee is assigned a special job to handle within the beehive their organization brings out the smooth operation of various activities within the hive! The western honey bee was one the first domesticated insects, and it is the primary species maintained by Beekeepers  to this day for both its honey production and pollination activities.  

 Bee season depends largely on temperature and the seasonal patterns of flowers. After hibernating over the winter, bees awaken in time to collect pollen and nectar from their preferred plants. But this year’s frigid winter storm and summertime droughts may be responsible for decreased honey production in Texas. Some of the losses this season can’t solely be attributed to the winter storm, weather devastated small hives and losses amounted to a 45 percent decrease in bee population and a 75 percent decrease in production, now honey production is down.  

We can to help out to the ecosystem by not exterminate them, unfortunately they could nest in our home structure or somewhere else in our property be patience think that they are trying to have a safe place to live in, if you hire a company to kill them then your real problem will start there! Call Raul the bee guy for a bees removal and relocation service your action will help the Environment by taking them to a place where they can to continue doing their natural course.

After a bee removal it’s been successfully made, we gently take the full bees colony as their nest to our apiaries in order for they to continue doing their natural course! Our experienced Beekeeper will set them up into already prepared bees box.
