Honeybee

There are approximately two hundred and fifty species of bee, although only thirty species form "social orders". One of these is the honey bee. The bee is a member of the vast order known as Hymenoptera, the most intelligent and organised of the insect world. Honey bees are social insects with a strict caste order with queen, drone and worker, all having a specific function within the community. The bees travel from hive to flowers during good flying weather gathering pollen and nectar, using it as a food source for themselves and for other members of the colony. It is this trafficking from flower to flower that is so beneficial as it pollinates many flowers and trees.
There is only one queen bee per hive during most of the year. In appearance she is slightly longer in the body than the worker but has noticeably smaller wings and she possesses a sting. The queen's purpose is solely laying eggs in the cells made by her workers and never leaves the hive in search of pollen and nectar. She is fed food, called bee-milk or chyle by nurse bees. Within the honey bee's strict caste order the queen is at the highest level and is shown a great deal of respect by the worker bees. They follow her wherever she goes allowing her clear space to walk in the congested hive.

How to remove Honeybee

For removal of honey bee hives in exposed situations outdoor the best method is to pinpoint the hive with a torch light beam on it & apply jet spray of aquatic emulsion of pesticides using a pressure pump profusely drenching the hive with the emulsion. This will kill all the bees in the hive. Hive will also become very heavy due to water & within few hours will fall to the ground by itself, which can be cleared next morning. At rare times it may be necessary to spray pesticide again if certain moribund bees are found hovering around the hive. The hive should be collected in a bag & burnt. The dust formulation of pesticide may be used when the nests are in the enclosed spaces. Dust will also move with the bees as they move in the colony & kill other individuals. Once the bees are killed as may be noted by the absence of swarming bees the wall of the spaces should be opened & comb removed at the earliest otherwise there is a risk of other insects being attracted towards honey, which will run down from the hive & made the area messy.
