Do bees cause damage to trees? Does the honey cause damage to trees? Can bees pass bacteria to trees?

Can bees live in trees in a manner that is safe to the people living around the tree?

Bees indicate decay pockets in the wood.

Like carpenter ants too.

I know that's just obvious but thought'd I broadcast that.

I have seen a number of trees fail at the point where a bees where in the trunk. I think that their presence usually means a large cavity and should be inspected. By someone other than me of course.

That's what I told the lady. The bees aren't causing decay, but they are there because OF decay, and like OM said, it should be looked at.

Fireblight can be spread by bees.

Fireblight of Mountain Ash anyway.
