IDENTIFYING BEE SPECIES AND CONTROL PRODUCTS
With proper information and identification, as well as professional grade products, it is possible to successfully handle bee issues with do-it-yourself pest control. Typically, Carpenter Bees and displaced Honey bees are the most common bees to cause issues in and around homes, office buildings and other structures. Identifying bee species can be helpful, as traits and behaviors can assist in proper precautions and actions being taken.
Awareness is a key preventative measure when it comes to avoiding issues with the bee population. Pay attention to high-activity spots in your yard or around your home and structures. Ground nests can pose a hazard if irritated by mowing, pets, or children- and should be treated if in an area that is frequented by foot traffic.
Nests within your home need to be address quickly, as to avoid a full-on infestation. Carpenter bees may technically be harmless, however if nesting deep enough within your structure there is potential that they can come through walls, outlets and fixtures and gain access inside you home. Noise can usually be heard inside walls if this is going to likely occur, and reactive measures can be quickly taken. Honey bees that nest in soffits or attics should be relocated.
TYPES OF BEES
Carpenter Bees are solitary bees, meaning they do not live in a colony. The large Carpenter Bees have a blue-black, green or purple metallic sheen. Carpenter Bees often are found burrowing into the exposed dry wood of buildings, decks, telephone poles, fence posts, and bridges. Carpenter Bees are not like honey bees and are solitary by nature, but the length of their tunnels can be as long as 12 inches and can and sometimes do house more than one bee. You often see a Carpenter Bee hovering around the exterior of the structure. This is the territorial male. But no worries; they lack a stinger and can cause no harm except aggravation. The female can sting but it is very rare.
Social Honey Bees are responsible for the pollination of many plants and crops, and our crucial to a successful ecosystem. Honey bees do have a potent sting, and can infest in large quantities, typically by building their nest inside of a dry structure.
Digger bees are robust and hairy ½ inch long bees that nest in burrows in the ground. These are also solitary bees and ordinarily cause no harm.
Bumble bees are insects covered with a dark black and yellow coloring, our standard bee symbolism. They are very beneficial pollinators for certain kinds of crops and ornamentals. Most of the bumble bees will nest in the ground, or above ground in abandoned birds nest or other structures.
