Anybody who has had a beehive near their home knows how alarming a swarm can be. My neighbor had the problem, which affected their home and several others nearby. My neighbor couldn't even enter their property. Another had two hives in their attic, with bees entering the house through the vents. Extracting bees is different than killing them, which isn't necessary.

It would be very helpful if these articles included contact information for anyone who would like to report beehives to the City.
