How to get rid of honeybees?
Asked in Collective Nouns
What is the collective noun for a group of honeybees?
Is it possible to get rid of honeybees or are they protected?
It is possible to get rid of honeybees in many countries since the insects in question (Apis spp) are more unprotected than protected. For example, the United Kingdom offers no legal protection. It nevertheless remains an ecologically and humanely unfriendly choice to eliminate honeybees since their honey is lucratively tasty and since they pollinate many edible, ornamental and wildflowering plants worldwide.
