Types Of Bees: A Guide To The Most Common Bee Species

Bryan is home to a few different types of bees. The most common species are carpenter bees, bumble bees, sweat bees, and honey bees.

Of these four species, honey bees are the most beneficial because of the amount they pollinate plants. Other bees also pollinate plants but don’t do as good of a job. Carpenter bees stand out because of their solitary nature. This insect builds its nest inside structures of wood and trees. This can lead to some fairly serious damage over time. There are also other threats associated with these pests. Here are some you should know about and methods to avoid bees on your property. 

The Buzz On Bee Stings: Risks And Allergic Reactions

There is probably a lot that you don’t know about bee stings. To start, did you know that honey bees do not always lose their stingers after an attack? If you allow these fuzzy insects to free themselves and do not jerk or swat them away, they will wriggle free and inject less venom over all. The same is not true for carpenter bees, sweat bees, and bumble bees, who can sting multiple times without ever losing their stingers.

For most people, a bee sting is not life-threatening. If you have an allergy to venom, you might have a much more severe reaction. If you have never been stung by a bee or wasp and don’t understand your risk, talk with your doctor. This will help you determine if you need to keep an EpiPen or not. Otherwise, here are some options for bee pest control and prevention. 

Natural Bee Repellents: Eco-Friendly Ways To Keep Bees At Bay

Avoiding bee stings is not always easy. If you would like to keep these pests away from your property, you might try to utilize some plants that these bugs dislike. Here are just a few to consider. 

  • Eucalyptus

  • Lemon

  • Lemon grass

  • Clove

  • Citronella

  • Lavender

These things will not, however, guarantee that these pests stay off your property. They will certainly not remove an active infestation. To do this, you will need bee control services. For the best bee control services near you, talk with our team at Entec Pest Management Inc.
