Bees and Wasps – Control & Removal
It is safe to say that we in Australia are all familiar with the presence of bees and wasps. They are distinctive yellow and black flying creatures that make a characteristic buzzing sound that becomes audible if they come into close proximity with you. Some species of the bee, like the Honey Bee, are arguably the most important creatures in our ecosystem, responsible for over 80% of the pollination required by most fruits, legumes, and vegetable seed plants. Many also do not sting. Therefore, it is essential to get a better understanding of the different species in order to identify the best form of bee and wasp control for your home or business.
Wasps are fierce predators, hunting and eating almost every form of insect pest that harms crops. However, some wasps have a tendency to be attracted to food that humans eat, which is why you may occasionally find one flying around you whilst you’re consuming food. Those who have been stung by wasps often report that it can be a painful experience, with others having witnessed hives being built around their home.
To keep your home as unattractive as possible to bees and wasps, it is ideal to keep food sources well sealed–especially those that have a high sugar and protein content, as this is what they appear to be most attracted to.
There are a couple of common breeds of bees and wasps in Australia:
European Wasps have a yellow and black body and are the ones that are generally responsible for the painful stings that some have experienced. If indoors, they prefer to build nests in some cavities, walls and ceilings, and compost bins.
Honey Bees are a more dull shade of yellow, with the same black stripes on their body. They often build their nests in trees, and occasionally in wall cavities or roof spaces.
