Please HELP - MANY bees outside and (now) inside our home

Recommended Posts

Jamie
We experienced a large swarm of bees at our home on Friday, 4/22.  I am pretty sure they are honey bees ... though I do not know much about bees at all.  
 
I wanted to attach a video from Friday ... and then a photo from yesterday - but am unable.  There is MUCH less outside activity than there was on Friday ... However, we have seen quite a few in our home in the basement (many of them dead on the window sills).  Also, when we showed our son the video, he and his friends recalled hearing a lot of buzzing in the vents ... on the weekend of 4/16 (!!).  We had not heard about this until Saturday.
 
If you could, please get back to me about what we could do about this problem.  We are afraid they are building/have built a hive in our home somewhere.  I know that honey bees are protected by law ... but we don't want them invading our home - so we please need advice on what to do.
 
We live in Leesburg.
 
Thank you so very much for your time and help with this!
 
Most Sincerely,
Jamie Semler

Is this still an issue?  It sounds like you may have had a swarm enter your dryer/heating system vent.

Hi Frank,

OH, it's certainly still an issue!  Looks like we have a comfy home for some bees ... guess they are entering a space in our wall above the vent ... not IN the vent (someone just came out and had a look).  If you know of a contractor that would be willing to work with a beekeeper, please let me know.  

THANK YOU for asking!
Jamie
