Most honey bees are not aggressive – they will attack only whenever their colony is threatened. But Africanized honey bees can be much more aggressive, and will sting without being provoked; swarms of these bees can be dangerous. Africanized bees will chase a target for over 300 feet, or the length of a football field; European bees will only pursue a victim for up to 33 feet.
Bees are beneficial insects that pollinate flowers and produce honey. If you suspect that the bees in your yard might be overly aggressive, your Clark technician can advise you on the best method of treatment. And if bees should build their hive in the walls or other parts of your structure, the hive should be removed before honey stains your walls or attracts other pests.
