Bees & Wasps Q&A
What are the differences between bees and wasps?
In regards to their appearance, there are many ways to physically tell bees and wasps apart from one another. Bees are generally large and fluffy insects, with their hairy bodies making it ideal for holding on to pollen as it is carried from one area to another. Wasps bodies in comparison are sleeker and more streamlined for hunting. One of the main differences between bees and wasps is that wasps can become aggressive or agitated when they feel their nest may be under threat. However in comparison, honey bees are generally gentle creatures, in which are too busy working to worry about harming others.
Are there different types of bees?
There are commonly three different species of bees that may cause customers to contact us, these include:
Bumble Bees – These are the largest of the bee species. Fluffy all over and black in colour with yellow bands, these bees may build their nests anywhere.
Masonry Bees – The smallest of the bee species, these bees are black and orange in colour. The bees drill into brick work to create cavities to build nests, potentially causing structural damage and considered to be a pest to your home or commercial property.
Honey Bees – These bees have a fluffy head with a smooth body. Black and yellow-orange in colour, honey bees may build their nests anywhere.
How can bees and wasps be treated?
Wasps can be treated by a fully certified pest controller with a powder based insecticide. The powder is initially ‘fogged’ into the entrance of the nest, in turn causing the wasps to then transfer this treatment deep into the nest and feeding it to the queen; this will kill the entire nest. Generally treatment is not given to honey or bumble bees, as the preferred method of dealing with these bees is via the local bee keeping association. However, treatment may be given to masonry bees without any prior contact, as they can potentially cause structural damage such as holes in the walls or damaged mortar between bricks, therefore should be dealt with immediately.
This can however be dependent on:
TDC Pest Tips:
What types of mice are there?
There are commonly two different types of mice:
House Mouse – Dusty grey in colour, these mice have a small head and slender body and are known to have excellent vision, smell, hearing and touch. These pests are highly adaptable to homes and indoor buildings, they only need a small space to be able to enter a building, therefore they often have access to many places and infest in large volumes.
Deer Mouse – Also referred to as a field mouse, these mice are reddish to golden brown in colour with white feet and chest. These pests have a small head and body, yet are larger in size than a house mouse. Deer mouse feast on seeds, grains and fruit and often aggravate farmers as a result of them infiltrating storage grains.
