Bees are commercially valuable and an important part of our ecosystem, but in the wrong place at the wrong time, they can become pest. Our area most typically encounters infestations from these species.

Like wasps, different bee varieties have different nesting behaviors. Honey bees and bumble bees are social creatures who create large communal hives with nesting galleries and large honey combs. Wood boring bees nest as individuals, with each bee boring its own egg and nectar gallery. Honey bee hives can be active for years, while bumble bee colonies die off each year.
