  • Africanized "killer" bees looks so much like a regular honeybee that the only way to tell the two apart is by measuring their bodies. Africanized bees have different wing measurements than honeybees.
  • Bumble bees are beneficial insects because they pollinate crops and plants.
  • Carpenter bees look like typical bumblebees but often lack yellow stripes. They are solitary bees.
  • Cicada killers are not aggressive but can sting. Their size usually scares people. Their activity is most visible in the spring of the year after the larvae develop and emerge from the nest they can be found in gardens feeding on pollen.
  • Honey bees are social insects found all over the world. They are an extremely important beneficial insect because of their role in pollination. Honey bees pollinate more than 100 crops in the U.S.. Honey bee hive removal can be very complicated if in the walls.
  • Hornets and wasps are insects feared by most people. Many people die every year as a result of being stung AND having severe allergic reactions to that sting. Wasps and hornets can be very aggressive. They live in colonies and are generally brightly colored, fairly large insects. One wasp can sting several times in an attack. It is important to avoid them and to be able to identify which one you may have. They nest in many locations in the ground, in trees and tree holes, and inside or on buildings.
  • Mud daubers are solitary wasps making a variety of different type nests. They use mud to make nests and supply food usually spiders to the developing larvae.
  • Yellow jackets are generally black and yellow in color and 1 1/2 inches long. Their nests may become very large with hundreds to even thousands of individuals living in holes in the ground, walls, etc.
