Bees, wasps, and hornets are all pollinators and are thus classified as beneficial insects. However, bees, wasps, and hornets can also be a nuisance in numbers and occasionally administer a nasty sting. Despite their beneficial qualities, stinging insects should not be near your home and family, especially if anyone is allergic. They can be dangerous to people and even cause structural damage.

Facts about bee stingsWhen dealing with these flying insects, it’s important to know which ones pose more of a threat. While all of them are able to sting, some are more likely to do so than others. Bumblebees can sting, but they don’t want to; these slow-moving insects won’t sting unless provoked or directly threatened by someone. However, yellow jackets are aggressive defenders of their nests and will chase people for longer than you may think. People are most often stung when the nests of bees or wasps are disturbed. If you see insects flying to and from a particular place, avoid it and call a professional! The bee sting is one of the most painful types of stings, and can be very dangerous to anyone who is allergic.

Preventing bee infestationsWhen their nests are in high-traffic areas, bees and wasps are more likely to perceive a threat and defend their nest at all costs. Additionally, in the late summer months, some bees and wasps become more aggressive in seeking out food like sugar and fruit, which is why they’re often seen hovering around outdoor picnics or near homes. To keep these pesky insects away, there are a few things you can do to help prevent bees:
- Remove any fallen fruit, trash cans, or other food sources that might tempt them.
- Grow plants like wormwood or eucalyptus that deter wasps.
- Keep lids on all food between servings if hosting a barbecue or picnic.
