FACTS AND INFORMATION ABOUT BEES FROM ONTARIO'S LEADING PEST CONTROL COMPANY

Bees have an enormous impact on our natural environment and livelihood. In addition to producing honey and beeswax these black and yellow insects are responsible for the pollination of plants. In Canada there are over 700 confirmed species of bees. As vital as their role is, they are often deemed a nuisance.

Most bees are social insects and generally build their nests/hives in low areas, in the ground or amid debris. Bees are often mistaken as wasps and can be distinguished by their broader, hairier bodies and legs.

While most species of bees are not naturally aggressive, they do possess stingers, which they will use to defend the colony or ward off attacks. When a bee stings, their barbed stinger detaches from it, causing their abdomen to rupture and resulting in death.
