Pennsylvania Bee Control

Residential Bee Exterminator | Viking Pest ControlStinging insects of all kinds can make people nervous or frightened. However, it’s helpful to know which stinging insect is troubling you so you can let your pest control professionals know when you call them. Perhaps the most common misconception about bees is that wasps are a type of bee.

Not so! Wasps and bees are completely different insect species. For one thing, bees have hair on their bodies, which helps them as pollination. Bees also have fatter bodies and thicker legs than wasps.

Bees’ nests or hives are strikingly different from those of wasps. Beehives tend to be waxy and sometimes honeycombed. Some bees also build nests by eating their way into wood or burrowing in the mud. Wasps’ nests are easy to recognize because of their distinctive paper-like material, explain the Pennsylvania bee control experts at Viking Pest. Did you know that hornets and yellowjackets are both types of wasps?

Even though bees can swarm and occasionally sting, each bee can only sting once, and usually, it’s a mild sting. Then, the bee dies. Wasps are more aggressive than bees and can sting multiple times, explain the pest management professionals at Viking. You might say that “a bee’s buzz is worse than its sting.” Bees can be annoying, though, and they’re especially worrying to those with bee sting allergies.

What Are Common Bee Species in Pennsylvania?

There are hundreds of bee species throughout Pennsylvania, and most of them bear little resemblance to the iconic bumblebee. There are carpenter bees, leafcutters, squash bees, sweat bees, green metallic bees, miner bees, cuckoo bees, Maine blueberry bees, and many others.

What Problems Can Bees Cause for Pennsylvania Home and Business Owners?

PA pest control experts state bee problems occur when a colony of bees builds its hive in or near your home or business. They might be looking for food—especially sweets. Or they might want a place that’s sheltered from the wind or a high-traffic area. People could get stung if they accidentally disturb the nest.
