As with many other insect species, bees in the Naples area swarm several times a year because of temperate and favorable weather conditions that promote the establishment of hives. During swarm season, a hive will split when a new queen bee is born. When the hive splits, the new queen and the preexisting queen will each have their own half of the hive which will each become their own unique bee community.
Swarming occurs when Scout Bees leave the hive to find a new location for the swarm to rest.
A swarm of bees can consist of over 5,000 bees! Though the sight of swarming bees may be frightening, a swarm is temporary and will likely leave within 72 hours, after a permanent location for the hive is established—your property.
Bees may choose to build their hive in your backyard, or even in the walls of your home. Regardles of location, our experienced professionals will remove the threat of bees to your Naples home.

North America is home to over 4,000 species of bees with over 315 species residing in Florida alone. These 300+ types of bees can be distinguished by their “families” which include Halictidae, Megachilidae, Andrenidae, and Apidae.
Halictidae: Also known as the sweat bees, most of the bees in this family are slender and dull
to metallic black. Female halictids carry pollen on lower areas of their bodies.
Megachilidae: Known for their important role as pollinators, these bees known as “leafcutters”
use cut leaves to create a nest inside cavities like rotting wood. These bees have the traditional yellow and black striping one may expect when looking at a Bee.
Andrenidae: These burrowing bees are traditionally ground-nesting. Small to moderate in size,
these bees burrow in the ground to create their nests, generally in sparsely vegetated areas.
Apidae: This family hosts some of the most common bee species such as bumblebees and honeybees. These bees are expert pollinators in both natural habitats and agricultural areas.
