Because bees, wasps, and hornets often have characteristic black and yellow markings, they are often mistaken for each other. These insects are technically related to each other, which is why they have the same body parts of abdomen, thorax, and head. However, the proportions of these parts are very different, which helps to distinguish between these creatures.
By learning the unique characteristics of these insects, homeowners can take the right precautions to stay safe. Some kinds of bees, such as bumble bees, are actually able to sting multiple times. This is because they do not have a barbed stinger like a honeybee. Nevertheless, bumble bees are much less likely to sting unless overtly provoked.
Some other elements which help distinguish between bees, yellowjackets, and other wasps include:
- Bees have more hair on their bodies than wasps, which look smooth
- Bees have a thicker waistline running between their abdomen and their thorax than yellowjackets and other types of wasps
- Hornets and wasps look extremely similar, but hornets are typically larger than wasps
- Wasps tend to be slimmer, smaller, and longer than bees, which often appear rounder
- Female wasps are the only ones that sting, which they can do on a repeated basis
It is essential to not only tell whether a stinging insect is a bee or wasp, but also identify what kind of variety it is. Once homeowners can alert professionals about the characteristics of the insect, experts can use the proper removal strategy. Homeowners can also take the necessary precautions to prevent their property from being attractive to these colonies in the future.
A few examples of stinging insects that homeowners may encounter include:
- Bumble bees
- Common wasps
- Digger wasps
- Tarantula hawks
- Bald-faced hornets
- Carpenter bees
- Mud daubers
- Paper wasps
- Mason bees
- German wasps
In the natural world, bees and wasps are actually incredibly vital, because they help with pollination. Various flowers, vegetables, fruits, and other plants would not be able to grow or produce without help from these insects. Of course, no one wants to have these otherwise beneficial bugs on their own property. Our team at Suburban Pest Control endeavors to remove these creatures safely. We can carefully relocate them into the wild so they will never bother you again.
