Characteristics Of Bees

Bees are reliant on pollen as a protein source and on flowers nectar or oils as an energy source. Adult females collect pollen primarily to feed their larvae. The pollen they inevitably lose in going from flower to flowers is important to plants because some pollen lands on the pistils (productive structure) of other flowers of the same species, resulting in cross pollination. Bee’s are the most significant pollinating insects, and their interdependence with plants makes them an excellent example of the type of symbiosis known as mutualism, an association between unlike organisms that is beneficial to both parties.

What is the Difference Between Bees and Wasps?

Wasps and bees are beneficial insects, although they are generally considered to be pests because of their ability to sting. Wasps, in particular, can become a problem in autumn when they may disrupt many outdoor activities. People often mistakenly call all stinging insects “bees”. While both social wasps and bees live in colonies ruled by queens and maintained by workers, they look and behave differently. It is important to distinguish between these insects because different methods may be necessary to control them if they become a nuisance.

Bees and wasps all belong to the order Hymenoptera. They are also members of the suborder Apocrita, characterized by a common narrow waist. This waist is really a thin junction between the thorax and the abdomen, giving these insects a waist-like appearance. (more…)

Minnesota Bees and Wasps Control

Because of their environmental value, many pest companies recommend controlling bee populations rather than exterminating them.  You can prevent a wood-burrowing species from damaging your home or establishing a colony in a dangerous area by applying bee repellents.  Other repellents can be sprayed near areas where bees already exist, but you should be cautious.  Not only is this method dangerous for one who is unprotected, it is dangerous for others.  The bees may simply swarm to a neighbor’s home, rather than to a safer place.

While you can buy and use chemicals for bee extermination or control, you need to keep in mind that they can be quite dangerous.  It is critical for you to take proper precautions and cover yourself from head to toe.  A particularly dangerous or severe bee infestation may call for extermination.  Those who are allergic to bees should forgo do-it-yourself extermination and hire a professional.  Those with pets or small children who could be adversely affected by these chemicals might also consider hiring a professional.  There are specific bee and wasp pest control methods that a professional can help you with.  Hiring a professional pest control can mean safe and efficient handling of the wasps and bees.

Bees & Wasps In MN

According to Pest Control Experts, there are several bee species. While most people envision bumblebees, that is to say bees swarming around a hive, many bees actually live in burrows.  Some burrow into wood.  Wasps, like bumblebees, create colonies. Wasps are particularly dangerous because while a common bee can only sting once, wasps can sting several times.

While there have been instances where wood-burrowing species have damaged homes, most prefer the rotting wood of trees.  Bees who develop hives can still cause great damage to one’s home should they find a means of establishing a hive within the structure, such as within a wall.

In such instances there is some risk that the weight of the honey produced can actually cause drywall to crumble, subjecting residents to a swarm of angry bees.  This is also very rare.  Most colonies can be identified by a number of protective males swarming about the area, though some may be more difficult to pinpoint.

Ridding your home of animals or pests is the first step in home repair.  Next is finding a company who can repair damages. Hiring a professional pest control can mean safe and efficient handling of the wasps and bees. A professional can handle your entire problem from start to finish, including pest control or animal removal, and the repair of damages that may have occurred.

Have you noticed there are increasing amounts of bees or wasps near your property?  If so, you should check the outside of your home and property for a hive.  While bees play a crucial role in pollination, pest control and honey production, they can also harm people, pets and property.

Bees play an important role in nature.  They pollinate plant and flower life, control other pests and produce honey. However, they can also sting.

While a few rogue bees in your back yard now and again is certainly not cause for alarm, a swarm of them living in a playground, near a home entrance or other area where one is likely to be stung is.  Irritated worker bees can pursue what they sense is an intruder, which at best can lead to a few painful stings and at worst to death.  While this is rare, it is certainly a concern.

While you can buy and use  chemicals for bee extermination or control, you need to keep in mind that they can be quite dangerous.  It is critical for you to take proper precautions and cover yourself from head to toe.  Those who are allergic to bees should forgo do-it-yourself extermination and hire a professional.  Those with pets or small children who could be adversely affected by these chemicals might also consider hiring a professional.  There are specific bee and wasp pest control methods that a professional can help you with.  Hiring a professional pest control can mean safe and efficient handling of the wasps and bees.
