Unlike some other insects, honey bees do not hibernate, but rather remain active in their colonies during winter months, huddling together to share body heat and consuming honey for nourishment. The intricate, well-known honeycomb structure found within colonies are constructed by drones to house the queen’s eggs. Commonly, nests are found in nature in hollow logs, trees, or rock formations, but, occasionally, honey bees may build a nest in the eaves, attic, chimney, or wall voids of structures. In general, honey bees are not patently aggressive, even when they swarm during warmer months. However, if provoked, they will attack, stinging or giving chase to an aggressor.
