Types of Bees
Bumblebees are the bees that pollinates crops, orchards, and flowers. A large hive may only contain 400 bees and are often have much smaller hives than honey bees. These hives are usually seen at ground level, under sheds, compost piles or abandoned holes by small rodents.
Both workers and queen bumble bees are able to sting when they are provoked or attacked, but you can be stung many times and survive in comparison to honey bills.
Honey Bees are black and yellow but are much smaller than bumble and carpenter bees. These hives are often seen in fence posts, logs, and hollowed-out treets. Sometimes attacks, crawl spaces, or walls if they are not properly secured.
Worker bees are known to sting when they are provoked or attacked. However since their stingers have barbs that attaches itself to the flesh of whatever it has stung, once it pulls away, the bee dies.
Carpenter bees are common known as wood bees. Very similar to bumble bees with their black and yellow body, however they are not fuzzy and they have a shiny black on the top side of their abdomen.
These bees are more commonly seen in parks and homes with gardens. They do not build hives, they burrow into wood surfaces to build their home to raise their young bees.
These bees can be a problem if they dig into your house structure. Carpenter bees may chase people but they are unable to sting.
