A very beneficial insect. They are important plant pollinators and providers of honey and wax. The European honey bee, which is indigenous to Washington State, is capable of stinging but is not known to be aggressive unless their nest is threatened. If you experience a problem, with these bees, we recommend contacting a local bee catcher. We’re sure they would jump at the opportunity to collect a Queen honey bee. Where the queen bee goes, the workers will follow! As a last resort, if the bees are in an inaccessible area, the nest can be extinguished. Please call us if this last resort becomes necessary. There is no documented existence of the Africanized (Killer Bees) honey bee in our state.
