Bees and wasps are characterized as unwanted, often painful pests, but there are distinct differences between the two.

Bees

Behavior: Less aggressive. It’s almost like they know that once they sting, the game is up.

Build: Fatter middle. They sample their own work before we scoop it up for our waffles at the breakfast table.

Abode: Wax hives.

 

Wasps

Behavior: More aggressive. These guys know they have a few stings left in them after initial contact.

Build: Thinner thorax.

Abode: Papery-textured nests.

 

We never want you to experience the sting of either of these guys, so let us know if you need any help getting rid of the risk!
