    As it is this early, they will swarm later in the summer (no harm to you), current queen will disappear and other cast swarms later. You may be lucky and the bees that remain don't produce a succesful mated queen for the winter and the colony will die out.
    You a bee keeper?

    I felt the same way but there may be no other option than to remove them forcibly. I've contacted my local swarm collector who hopefully may be able to assist. The problem is that they are at the top of the house and there are health and safety issues.

    No, they aren't only if you provoke them they will follow you until the end of the world.

    The only place that is annoying is inside my car while I'm driving. If I can't remove them the only option is to kill the poor devil.

    Last weekend I found a honey bee in the front garden. It was out of energy. I gave it some honey. 5 minutes later it flew off.

    Thank goodness it did not need the kiss of life.

    We've left them where they were. If honey starts dripping through the ceiling we'll have to do something but live and let live is what I say. Unless it's Halal; then nuke them from orbit.
