General Information about Honey Bees:

  • Honeybee colonies usually have one fertile “Queen Bee” that produces eggs from spring to fall.
  • Worker bees usually feed on nectar and pollen.
  • Bees are usually most active during the day, and can be active year round depending on location and region.

Mice can contaminate food-preperation areas with their feces and can cause severe damage to structures.
