Be On The Lookout For “Super” Bees’ Nests
This is almost like something out of a horror film! Super bees nests are popping up around the country!
If you live in the south, there is an increased risk to spot these large hives. According to Gizmodo.com:
Typical yellow jacket nests might contain up to a few thousand workers in a cavity, but if the weather doesn’t get cold enough in the winter to kill off many of these insects, then the nest could live on. This has produced nests containing 15,000 insects or more.
I have a neighbor that raises honey bees. I am trying to become less nervous around bees. However, if I were to see one of these nests I imagine I might not be as brave around it.
