Bee Identification & Prevention

What are bees?

A bee’s exact appearance depends on its specific species. In general, bees have yellowish-colored bodies with brown banding covered in a light layer of hair. They have barbed stingers that they use to defend themselves and their colonies. Bees are social insects living and working together in large colonies, and a single bee colony can survive and remain active for many years. Here in our area of southern Nevada and all throughout the United States, bees play a critical role in the agricultural industry and are responsible for pollinating a variety of crops, trees, and other plants.

Are bees dangerous?

Being equipped with barbed stingers filled with venom makes bees dangerous pests. Bee stings are painful, and the venom they inject is strong enough to trigger allergic reactions and even cause life-threatening anaphylaxis. Fortunately, bees can only sting once, and then die shortly after. Therefore, stinging a perceived threat is their last means of defense. Bees that find their way behind the walls of your home or business to nest will create a new set of problems for property owners here in Nevada. Beehives filled with sticky honey can create mold and moisture problems on your property, and the honey also attracts other pests.

Why do I have a bee problem?

If your yard offers a suitable nesting spot for bees, you are apt to experience problems with them. Bees are also attracted to properties with abundant food sources. Gardens, flowers, and fruit trees are all things that bees gather pollen and nectar from to feed their colony.

Where will I find bees?

Bees are most often found buzzing around gardens areas, flowering plants, or near their nests. Tree cavities, bushes, rock crevices, roof eaves, woodpiles, and areas underneath decks are common outdoor nesting sites. If bees do ever make their way inside your property to nest, they usually do so in attics, chimneys, and behind wall voids.
