PEST LIBRARY / BEES
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 around 800 species of bees, but in the world overall, there are more than 25,000 known bee species.
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 & hornets, but 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.
