The natural nest-site of honey bees is hollows inside old-growth trees. Today, the most available nest sites may be man-made features like voids in houses and other structures. Bees do not cause significant structural damage and may cohabit with humans indefinitely. But if the owner wants them removed, it requires the services of a specialist.
