Bees

Bees are best known for their role in pollination and producing honey and beeswax. But there's much more to know about these interesting insects.

Bee Quick Facts

Here's some information about bees to help you stay awared.

  • Bumble bee nests can often be found in the ground abandoned by small rodents, under sheds or in compost piles.

  • Bumble bees will only sting when attacked or provoked but can sting multiple times and will survive after stinging you.

  • Honey bees can be found near homes where beekeepers have cultivated hives for honey production.

  • The honey bee stinger has barbs that attach to flesh and when it pulls away, the stinger remains in the victim and pulls out of the bee's body. This kills the bee.

  • Carpenter bees chew into wood surfaces to build chambers where they lay their eggs.

  • Carpenter bees chase people, but they are not able to sting. Female bees can sting but will only sting if they are handled or the hive is attacked.
