Bee Swarms and Attacks
Bees must be taken seriously. Stings can be life threatening. If you or a family member have been stung, immediately contact Poison Control at 602-253-3334 to determine whether the sting can be managed at home or needs medical attention. Parents, take a moment to tell your children what to do if there are bees in the area. Do not try to remove the bees yourself, and do not call 9-1-1 unless the bees are attacking and someone is in a life-threatening situation. Contact a bee removal expert for swarm and hive removal or relocation.
