Please note: Honeybees and Wasps will guard their nests ferociously when they feel threatened. Usually the ones you see near the entrance to their homes are just the guard bees or wasps. For every one you see, you should assume that there are 1000 more inside. One alarm raised by a guard will bring forth a seemingly endless supply of ticked off bees or wasps with you as their intended target. Bees and Wasps can fly faster than you can run. Those who have provoked a bee, wasp, or hornet nest while unprepared for the result, have learned a valuable life lesson. One they hope never to experience again!
