  1. I hope someone comes out to calm them or move them. Too many people could be stung, and if allergic, it could be a big problem.

  2. I hope a bee keeper gets them relocated. We need bees, but not in the shopping center parking lot : /

  3. I invite them to come to my house to pollinate my flowers. We don’t get enough bees anymore.

    • We have had several swarms over on the west side of town in years past and not one person called would come out to take them away. We were told to leave them alone and in a couple of house they go away.

      • I had this happen to me in my front yard and we called a bee keeper from the yellow pages and he came and got them for free. We made a small donation to him anyways for his time and swift response. He wanted them for his bee farm in Byron. Its money in his pocket for producing honey. They do fly away, but it takes time.

  4. No, African bees have never been in this area, they cannot survive through the winter. Honeybees do not bite, the female or worker bee has a barbed stinger. Once she stings someone it sticks in them and upon seperation it pulls out the venom sac along with its intestine causing it to die. My 9 year old son will come and collect them for free (he would love a small donation though for his time, but will do it for fun and love of bees). We have collected lots of swarms all over the bay area and central valley. Check out Clee’s Bees Honey on facebook! Honeybees often get confused with its enemy, the wasp or yellow jacket. These swarms may seem intimidating, but when handled with respect can be quite harmless.
