Bees, Wasps, Hornets
Some types of stinging insects you may find around your home:
- Africanized "killer" bees look so much like a regular honeybee that the only way to tell the two apart is by measuring their bodies. Africanized bees have different wing measurements than honeybees.
- Bumblebees are beneficial insects because they pollinate crops and plants.
- Carpenter bees look like typical bumblebees but often lack yellow stripes. They are solitary bees.
- Cicada killers can sting but are not aggressive—though their size usually scares people. Their activity is most visible in the spring after the larvae develop and emerge from the nest. Cicada killers are usually found in gardens feeding on pollen.
- Honey bees are social insects found all over the world and are extremely important and beneficial insects because of their role in pollination. Honey bees are responsible for pollinating more than 100 crops in the U.S. alone. Removing a honey bee hive can be very complicated, especially if it is in a wall.
- Hornets and wasps are feared by most people. These insects are very aggressive and can cause severe reactions in people with bee allergies. Unlike most bees, one wasp can sting several times in an attack. Hornets and wasps live in colonies and are generally brightly colored fairly large insects. They nest in many locations in the ground, in trees and tree holes, and inside or on buildings.
- Mud daubers are solitary wasps making a variety of different types of nests. They use mud to make nests and are predatorial, usually hunting spiders.
- Yellowjackets are generally black and yellow in color and 1 1/2 inches long. Their nests may become very large with hundreds to even thousands of individuals living in holes in the ground, walls, etc.
