This well established hive was removed from a large tree pot in West Palm Beach, Florida. These are feral bees and will be housed behind my home for a short time before being moved to the bee yard. Recorded here is their entrance activity on their first day in their new home. It's mostly orientation flights and foragers flying around, at least 10 flying around the hive, and then another 10 leaving/entering the hive for forager duties.

These are my third feral hive of bees, and the only ones to sting me so far have been the European bees. So don't buy into the hype that they're hyperaggressive. Honeybees would rather go about their chores than die for no reason. If they feel their hive is being threatened then they will defend their young just like any other animal. So treat them with some respect and they'll just keep about your business.

IF YOU NEED BEES REMOVED, please please call your local beekeeper association for a beekeeper to come and remove your bees. We need our agricultural partners, so please don't spray them. At the very least, call a bee removal specialist who *relocates* the bees. Many will advertise "organic" treatment, but not that they will relocate them. All that means is they're using a spray to kill them that is not toxic to the environment.
