The Difference Between Wasps, Hornets and Bees

Wasps, hornets and bees all sting, and that is enough information for most people. However, if you are dealing with an infestation of bees, wasps, or hornets, the type of pest makes a tremendous difference in the types of repellents and treatments that you use.

It is especially important for homeowners with extensive residential or commercial property to understand the differences between the three types of stinging pests.

Bees are the easiest to tell apart – they are the only furry pest of the bunch. Both wasps and hornets have a much more streamlined look. However, the physical appearance of the species is far from their only distinction. Unlike wasps or hornets, bees die immediately upon stinging a victim. Bees also nest much differently and protect their territory in different ways. A clear out technique that works for a bee infestation may lead to serious injury if you apply it to a wasp infestation. Be careful and identify the pest that you are trying to get rid of before applying any DIY resistance techniques. If in doubt at all, it is never wrong to call a professional exterminator.
