Bees are one of the most beneficial insects around. They pollinate flowers and make some really fine honey. Still, they have a nasty sting and you probably don't want them around your home. Some people are allergic to bee stings and can become seriously ill or even die from a single sting. Occasionally, you'll see hundreds of bees swarming. They do this when looking for a new home. If you see this happen, you'll need professional help to guide them to a place where they can live productive lives away from people. You should never try to kill them with insecticides. A good pest control specialist has the equipment to tranquilize the bees. He'll then relocate them, which normally means finding the queen. When she's removed, the rest of the bees will follow. If your problem is just an occasional bee in the garden, a pest control professional can offer several methods of bee control.
