Bees are a beneficial group of insects that pollinate flowering plants; supply humans with delectable honey and control other insect pest species. However, they can be of medical concern because of the effects of their sting. Control methods should be done only where bees are an immediate threat to humans and pets. Bees can be controlled using the appropriate pesticides and applications.
Carpenter Bees are a nuisance because of their nesting habits in wood. While they prefer, dry, unpainted wood, they will nest in just about any type. Carpenter Bees appear similar to Bumble Bees and males lack a stinger. They become aggressive when humans come too close, buzzing around a person’s face and head. To control theses bees, the appropriate pesticides should be applied to woodwork.
Honeybees are the source of – you guessed it – honey! While they are important pollinators, they also account for a large number of insect stings. Honeybees are hairy and orangish-brown, and dwell in sheltered areas including hives, hollow trees, walls, attics, etc. They are not aggressive insects, but will attack if they feel threatened. When traveling in swarms they are fairly docile, but if the hive is approached the colony will go into attack mode. Hence, be cautious once entering their environment. If you are stung and the reaction is more severe than a small whelp, seek medical help immediately. Removing bees can be an extensive, even dangerous process, making professional help advisable.
