Appearance and Size Facts

  • Size: 1/2 inch to 1 inch long
  • Bee colonies are the most evident sign of infestation.
  • Bees will die after they sting, leaving their stinger and venom sacs attached, which continue to release venom until the sac is emptied or the stinger is removed.
  • There is only one queen per hive, which is the largest bee, and her main function is laying eggs.

Behavior and Habitat of Bees

A beehive functions as a miniature society; they contain three specialized groups or castes. The castes consist of workers, drones and queens, and each has their own specialized function. There is only one queen per hive, which is the largest bee, and her main function is laying eggs. A hive may contain as many as 40,000 worker bees, which are all sterile females, and tend to be the smallest. The males, or drones, can number up to 2,000, and make up the remainder of the hive.
