How do you know if you have a honey bee swarm?

Honey bees are golden brown in color. They are a little bit fuzzy with stripes on their abdomen. They will be in a cluster (a ball of bees) under a picnic table, on a fence post, on a tree branch or any number of places. They also may have made a hive in the walls of your home or garage. They do not form a paper nest of any sort, those are wasps, you will need an exterminator for proper removal. If you find a swarm of bees it is important to contact a beekeeper immediatly! Do not spray them with any type of insecticide!
