How do I even get started?
I understand I need a box with some grids/cells. Where can i get a small one? Or can i make my own?
Also, do bees operate all year in a Zone 7? In winter and all?
Plus, if i have a box, how do i attract the bees? I barely ever see any….
Do they just come naturally? Or do I lay bait?
I live in my house behind the garage since my sister just had a baby and they needed an extra room. I’ve been living back here since last december and two weeks ago I saw a bee flying around. I sprayed it and it died. Then I saw another, killed it, then I found a dead one on my floor this morning. I have no insulation in this room, how are they getting in?!?!
I’m also surprised I found any considering it’s really cold out and they start going underground around this time.

I know that the bees in a colonie need a queen bee and without one the worker bees will start laying unfertilized eggs that slowly fill up the colonie until there is no room for the honey-making portion of their lives, but when that happens and the owner of the colonie has to get a new queen they are sent one in a tube in the mail. Where did this queen bee come from and why was it born a queen bee and not a different, more common type of bee?

And I would like to know what type of bee are they.
I live in south florida, by the way.
I just notice a bunch of honey bees in the front yard in a bush. How can i tell these are regular honey bee’s and not killer bee’s?
