How can you kill honey bees?

Please don't. If you have honey bees near you and you want to get rid of them, contact a beekeeper or beekeeping association, and someone will come and remove them. If you live in the UK then check out the BBKA website to find a swarm co-ordinator local to you - there is a list with contact details. they will be able to advise and assist you.


What is the population of bees?

In an indvidual colony of honey bees (i.e. one hive) the population will fluctuate quite a lot during the year. At its lowest level in Winter it could be 10,000 bees whereas at its height in Summer it could easily exceed 50,000 bees. In the UK there are an estimated 200,000 to 250,000 hives so you say that there may be as many as 125,000,000,000 honey bees around in the middle of Summer. There are of course also other types of bees - solitary bees and bumblebees, for example - that would raise the number higher. As for world population, I cannot help you. One would need to consider the different seasons at any one time and the many tpes of stingless and other bees that exist.


Do queen bees bite?

There is not a species of bee in the UK that bites as far as I am aware. Most bees rely on stings to defend themselves or their colony.In the case of honey bees the queen only uses her sting to eliminate rival queens. You are also very unlikely to come across her unless you are a beekeeper as she spends nearly all of her life in the hive/nest. If she is part of swarm then she is usually near the centre of the mass of bees.


How do you Kill honey bees in wall in home?

First find out what type of bees they are (and especially that they are not wasps). There are many types of bees that nest in relatively small numbers and will do no harm or damage sharing the wall of your house. You will need to find a beekeeper whose interest in bees extends beyond just honey bees but there are quite a few of us about. If you live in the UK then check out the BBKA website - there will be a list of 'swarm co-ordinators' sorted geographically along with their contact details. I have dealt with several cases of mason bees and other solitary bees that people have been quite happy to leave in situ once they know what is involved. Last year I had a nest of bumblebees living under our house, coming and going via an air brick. They did no harm and generally bumblebee nests only last for one season.


What is the most dangerous animal in the UK?

"Deadliness" is a subjective concept. The animals we consider deadly to us will be harmless to many other species, and those that are harmless to us may be voracious predators in their own world. Based on this premise, the UK's deadliest animal is quite possibly the Common Water Shrew which kills many times it's own weight of other small animals every day. The deadliest animal to humans in the UK is other humans

Are honey bees protected?

No bees have Protected Species status in the UK. But they are so vital to our biodiversity and ultimately to our ability to produce food that many believe that they should be offered some form of protection. 'Protected Species' are as designated by the Wildlife and Countryside Act (WCA) 1981 and in the case of insects by Schedule 5 of the Act. Neither honey bees, bumble bees or any other species of bee is included in the schedule. Section 74 of the Countryside and Rights of Way (CRoW ) Act 2000 and Nature Conservation (Scotland) Act (2004) list a number of bees that are deemed of importance for the conservation of biodiversity and place certain conservation obligations on public bodies although this does not afford the bees themselves protection. Likewise, the International Union for Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources (IUCN ) Red List of endangered species does not list any UK bees. Cases involving prosecution of UK persons found to have killed bee nests have invariably been related to the misuse of poisons or health and safety.
