Help With Bees
Please spread the word if you have new neighbors who haven’t lived in Menlo Oaks in spring — bee season is arriving and it’s important to keep honeybees safe since their numbers are dwindling and California depends on them for honey and crop pollination.
Honeybees swarm when the colony has outgrown its current nest. The queen and about half the bees will swarm suddenly and cluster in a bush or tree for a few days on their way to find a new place to nest. The bees have gorged themselves on honey to prepare for the move, so they are not aggressive and usually can’t sting.
Whether you have a swarm or you want to remove honey bees from your yard, you can find a local beekeeper to come out and collect the swarm for free. Here are three suggestions for people to contact:
