I have recently found about a dozen queen bees in my basement, some dead, others "drousy." Does this mean I will have a problem with other bees during the summer? What should I do? I rent, so I assume this is something the landlord should handle. Thanks.

Beekeeper:  Hi Noreen, It typically means either a bee hive is in the basement wall / roof, or the bees are considering moving in.
Generally the landlord is responsible or liable for this, however some people have other arrangements. Usually if the bees are in the basement wall or ceiling its a job that would involve the landlord. Here is further info on bees in walls, attic, or eaves
