Honey bee colony size....
A mature honey bee colony contains 20,000 to 100,000 bees, depending on the season. The population will peak from late spring to summer and reach a low point in winter.
Honey bee removal from structures is not a job for a person who has never worked around stinging insects or even a novice beekeeper. Sometimes, this work is done while standing on a ladder with hundreds of angry bees trying to protect their home. Bee removal can be unnerving to even the experienced beekeeper and lead to accidents.
