What should I wear to a hive inspection?

Always attend hive inspections wearing loose-fitting, light-colored pants; long socks (not wool!); sturdy, close-toed shoes; and a long sleeve top. Thicker materials are best, and everything should be light-colored/khaki.

Bees are attracted to different materials, especially wool, so never wear wool socks to a hive inspection! They are also more likely to sting you if you are wearing dark or tight-fitting clothes.

Can I purchase local honey from the Dunwoody Nature Center?

Yes! Please contact to inquire about purchasing local honey.

I am having a problem with bees at my house! Who should I call?

If you notice a big pile of bees sitting on a tree branch, your outdoor furniture, or your child’s playset, congratulations! You have found a swarm! Swarming bees are looking for a new place to call home. This happens when a colony gets too large for its hive. These bees are generally gentle and well-behaved.

Occasionally bees will build a hive in your home’s siding, garage, or somewhere else inconvenient! While this can be frustrating and sometimes scary, it is NOT a reason to call an exterminator.

Please call a local beekeeper to come and remove the bees. They will help the bees find a happy new home. If you need help finding one, contact our staff at 770-394-3322 or
