A few of these insects scout for a new home while the others remain in this cluster and they all move to their new home once the scouting bees find one. A swarm does not include a comb with pollen or honey.

These insects prefer dark niches to build their nest and may often choose a small space in the structure of your home or the hollow of a tree to build their nest. They may even choose to build their home in the open like on the branches of a nearby tree. These pests store honey and pollen while raising their young in a nest and so you can be sure you will find these in their nest.
- Bee Hive:
These are man-made and used to manage colonies of bees. A beehive helps remove honey without causing any harm to the insects and is usually kept in an apiary. However, removal services should only be carried out at the hands of skilled experts in Melbourne.
