Pest Facts from HomeTeam

Bees can be found feeding on nectar and pollinating flowers throughout the U.S. They are typically one inch long with yellow and black stripes, six legs, two pairs of wings, and a stinger. Their hairy, plump bodies are the main differentiators from wasps. While wasps have smooth bodies, bees are covered in feather-like hairs.

Bees sting many people each year. Most severe injuries occur from hypersensitivity, or allergies to the venom from a bee’s sting. You can prevent bees by sealing empty cavities in your roof or in the siding on your home. Seek a professional if you have an infestation.
