Bees and Wasps

While bees and wasps are similar in many ways, they both play very important but separate and equal parts in our worlds eco-system. Bees and wasps are the world’s most important pollinators of food, crops and flowers. Since bees and wasps are vital in order for our eco-system to thrive. We will only treat these insects if they are causing a problem in your home or building.

BEES

In terms of species of bees there are about 20,000 different species of bees with honey bee’s being the largest in population. Bees can be divided into three separate roles of their colonies which are the queen bee, the worker bee and the drone bee. The worker bee and queen bee are both females however, only the queen bee can reproduce. The drone bees are males only. A drone bee’s sole responsibility is to mate with the queen and the queens only job is to lay eggs. The worker bees are the busiest of the three. A worker bee’s job is to pollinate and collect nectar to feed to the hive as well as take care of the offspring. Bees roles in our environment are so large that one third of the food we consume each day relies on their pollination.

WASPS

While there aren’t as many species as bee’s there is still over 4,000 species of wasps. They are typically most active during the day and return to their nests at dusk. In early summer, wasps pollinate plants and flowers as they feed on nectar. With this being the case wasps do serve a purpose, and despite being a problem at certain times of the year, they are a beneficial insect. Wasps also regulate populations of crop pests adding another beneficial role to their place in our eco-system.
