What are bees?

Most bees are social insects, though some are solitary. The honey bee is considered a true social (eusocial) insect. It primarily lives in nests that are sometimes called hives and have a caste system made with queens, reproductive males, and workers of both sexes. While most species of they are not naturally aggressive, they do possess barbed stingers, which they use to defend the colony or ward off attacks. When a bee stings, the stinger detaches from the bee, rupturing the abdomen and causing it to die.

Despite bearing a strong resemblance to wasps, they typically have broader, hairier bodies and legs than wasps.

Where are bees found?

The first sign people notice are actual wasps flying around the house, yard, or garden. They might hover around flowers, tree blossoms, and gutters.

They are responsible for pollination of plants, producing both honey and beeswax, and are one of nature’s best friends. There are over 700 confirmed species of bees in Canada alone, and though vital in some areas, they are regarded as nuisance pests by many people.

While they typically display nonaggressive behaviour, large infestations may still lead to attacks and stings on humans and pets alike. For the proper removal and prevention of bee infestations, contacting a trained pest control specialist is typically the most serviceable solution.
