Letter: Be kind to bees

It’s spring and honey bees are on the move.

They’re going to spend the next month or so looking for new places to live as they swarm out after a long winter. Swarms are not dangerous and are considered docile, unless you try to hurt them, like any creature.

Please call your local beekeeper if they’ve relocated too near to your house or business for your comfort. Please do not spray them with poisons.

If you have any questions or need help removing bees, call your local pest control service (make sure they have a no-kill honey bee policy) or contact me at 970-379-4581 or
