Indianapolis Bee Control
Most people are afraid of bees and that is quite understandable given that their sting can be excruciatingly painful; not to mention people who are allergic to stinging insects.
Stingless Bees – These particular Indianapolis bees do not sting but bite in order to defend themselves. You will find them nesting in branches, cavities in the ground and tree trunks. They are smaller than honeybees but are still ideal for pollination because residents have no fear of being of stung by them.
Honey Bees – These social bees can survive all year long but like many pests will become dormant during winter months. Swarms of honey bees can contain as many as 45,000 bees and produce up to 80 pounds of honey. You will never see a ‘small’ hive and they will typically be discovered buzzing around structural openings. Bee stings can be very painful but honey bees can only sting once due to their stinger becoming lodged into your ski.
Carpenter Bees – Carpenter bees do not sting and the males are a solid black color. If you notice a female it will be a tan color and they can sting. Many people often mistaken carpenter bees for bumble bees but you can tell the difference by the shiny appearance of the carpenter bee and less hair than bumble bees. Carpenter bees also fly in a jerk-like motion which is another way to distinguish it from bumble bees. They burrow holes into structures the size of a penny or dime and is one way to identify a carpenter bee issue.
