Bee Appearance and Size Facts

Bees range from half an inch to one inch in size and are essential pollinators. Despite their environmental benefits, their presence around households can lead to potential issues. Bee colonies are typically found in areas like tree branches, leaves, or even within the structures of homes. One noteworthy aspect of bees is their defensive mechanism. Upon stinging, they die, leaving their stinger and venom sacs attached to their victim. The release of venom continues until the sac is emptied or the stinger is removed.

Behavior and Habitat of Bees

A beehive is a complex miniature society consisting of three specialized groups or castes, including workers, drones, and queens. The hive’s queen, the largest bee, focuses on laying eggs to sustain the colony. Worker bees, the most numerous and smallest, carry out various tasks while male bees, or drones, contribute to the hive’s reproduction. Hives may contain as many as 40,000 worker bees and up to 2,000 drones. Unlike wasps and hornets, most bees will avoid humans when possible. However, if disturbed, they’ll aggressively defend their nests, so treat any size bee infestation with caution.

Signs of Infestation of Bees

Large hives or swarms of bees are the most evident sign of a potential infestation. Don’t worry if you see a few bees on your property. They’re likely just visitors looking for pollen. However, if you notice an increased presence of bees near your home, you could have an infestation.
