Bees are interested in any type of void that will offer protection. These voids include, but are not limited to, chimneys, wall voids, attics, crawl space, barbeques, irrigation valve box, trees and bushes, and debris stacked in a way where it will create a nice living space for bees.
Typically a new bee hive consists of 4,000 to 6,000 bees. They can swarm to their chosen location and move into a structure in as little as 15 minutes. After they have moved in, about 10 to 25 bees will be travelling to and from this location throughout the day. These bees are called worker bees. It is their job to forage for food for the rest of the hive. Upon their return to the hive, they are filled with nectar and are carrying pollen, which are their building materials to make honeycomb and grow their hive.
The bees will start working the same day that they move into their new home. A new bee hive can start to build anywhere from half a pound to a pound of honeycomb per day. This is why it is important to get any bee infestations taken care of as soon as possible, to limit the amount of honeycomb produced so that structural removals and repairs will not be necessary.
After the bees have been there for seven days or longer, they will have built enough honeycomb to create other problems for the structure. Some of these problems include honey melting, which causes noticeable stains and structural damages, new bee hives returning to the area because they can smell the honey and assume it is a place to live, and the arrival of wax moths, ants, and rodents that will want to come and feed on honey and establish nests nearby.
- A honeybee can fly approximately 15 miles per hour.
- A honeybee will flap its wings about 11,000 times per minute creating that “BUZZ” sound.
- A typical beehive makes more than 400 pounds of honeycomb per year.
- Honeybees will usually travel between three to five miles from their hive.
- A worker bee visits about 50 to 100 flowers during each trip to collect pollen and nectar.
- Bees do not create honey, they are actually improving nectar. The honey we eat is nectar that bees have repeatedly regurgitated and dehydrated.
- A productive hive can make and store up to two pounds of honeycomb a day.
- Bees possess five eyes and have four wings.
- Although Utah has the title of “The Beehive State”, the top honey producing states include California, Florida, and South Dakota.
- The Queen bee’s only job is to lay eggs up to 2,000 per day, for two to five years. The worker bees control how many eggs she lays with the amount of food they feed her.
- In 1956, African honeybees were brought to Brazil and cross-bred with local honeybees to create hybrid bees to increase honey production. Unfortunately, these new hybrids turned out to be very aggressive. Several Africanized queens escaped from Brazil, and Africanized bees have gradually spread northward through South America, Central America, eastern Mexico, and now the United States.
- Africanized bees look exactly like regular honeybees, but they act a bit differently. Africanized bees are more fierce and quick at defending their hives.
- A killer bee will sting in three seconds, whereas, it takes a honeybee as long as 30 seconds to sting.
- Africanized bees chase their enemies for longer distances, and tend to gang up, stinging in large numbers. When a person is stung many times that could be dangerous. But a single sting from one Africanized bee is no more dangerous than any other bee sting.
