How To Identify A Bee Infestation

Appearance- Bees and wasps can be mistaken for one another, as both can sting. Wasps however are more aggressive, while bees will more commonly only sting when provoked. Knowing the difference between a bee and a wasp is important for treating a sting received, as well as taking care of the wasp or bee problem. Bees are usually black bodied or sometimes with brown or orange or yellow striations. Bees are also hairy, while wasps usually have a smooth and shiny skin. Another way to tell the difference is a bee will be fat bodied, while a wasp will have a narrow waist.

Behavior - Bees are social and live in large colonies with a queen and drone workers. Bees seek out flowers for their nectar, the primary source of energy, which they turn into honey for food in the winter. Bees will swarm when virgin female bees leave the nest to form a new colony elsewhere, or bees will swarm when disturbed and in defense of the colony.

Why You Might Have Bees

Bees are an important insect to have in your yard. These pollinators play an important role in our natural biodiversity. However, sometimes the bee situation can get a little out of hand.

You don't want your home and yard to be full of bees. Many people are allergic to bee stings, so their presence on your property could be dangerous. Additionally, bees can cause major damage to your home or other structures. If bees are causing you problems, the advice below will help you solve the issue.

How to Spot a Bee Problem

There are many species of bees. Where the bees live depends on their species. For example, bumblebees make their nests underground. Honeybees, on the other hand, nest in tree cavities. It doesn't matter where their nests are, though. If you notice the following signs, you have a bee infestation.

  1. Lots of bees.
    Lots of bees, especially if they are in your home, are a sign of an infestation. Many types of bees, such as honeybees, do swarm from April to May. They swarm when looking for a new hive. During this period, if you leave them alone, the problem should resolve itself. However, if you notice swarms any other time of the year, it could be a sign of a major bee issue.
  2. Dark spots on ceilings or walls.
    Honeybees that nest in a house can cause damage to the ceilings or walls. You may begin to see dark patches, which are actually caused by honey.
  3. Spotting a beehive.
    If you see a beehive on your property, you likely have a bee issue. The issue is even direr if that hive is built in or on your home. In that case, it is important to have the bees removed immediately.
