ALEX EASTON MLA NOT SURPRISED BY BEE SWARMS IN BANGOR.

Alex Easton MLA is not surprised by the two reported swarms of Bees in the Bangor area.

 

Speaking today Alex Easton MLA said:

 

“This is a natural occurrence and as someone whose grandfather kept bees I was used to Bees swarming as the hives Bee population become bigger, Bees then swarm to find a new home. Bees are not dangerous unless you interfere with them, which is why it’s important that if a swarm of Bees come onto your property that you close your doors and windows and phone the Council Environment Officer, who will deal with the swarm and remove it to a more suitable location.”

“Bees are an essential part of our wildlife that fertilize our plants and flowers and gives us honey; they are harmless but can give you a nasty sting, so it is best to let the experts deal with them when they swarm.”
