With warmer weather and increased outdoor activity, the Clark County Fire Department said it boosts the possibility of people encountering bees in Southern Nevada. According to the Nevada Department of Agriculture, bees tend to be most active from the spring to the fall, when they are colonizing and looking to set up hives. "When you are outdoors, be aware of your surroundings and keep an eye out for bees the way you would watch out for snakes and other natural dangers," said Clark County Fire Chief John Steinbeck. "If you accidentally encounter bees, do not disturb them. Remain calm and quietly move away, keeping yourself and your family members and pets out of harm's way to avoid stinging incidents. Bees are generally docile unless they are disturbed or threatened."
