BEE AND WASP CONTROL
Bees and wasps are most active during the summer months.
There are around 20,000 different species of bees in the world and around 1500 of these are native to Australia.
Bees play an important role as pollinators in the garden. Without bees many of our vegetables and fruit would never mature. In fact, over 30 industries are dependent on bee pollination for most of their production.
Bees feed on nectar and pollen.
There are around 30,000 identified species of wasps. Wasps can be distinguished from bees by their pointed lower abdomen. They also have a narrow section that separates the abdomen from the thorax.
Wasps are fierce predators and eat grasshoppers, aphids, flies and dead insects. They also eat nectar, tree sap and fruit. Their activity helps to control insects that harm crops.
Wasps usually only sting it they are disturbed. The venom in a wasp sting contains a chemical that causes other wasps to become more aggressive.
How to Know You Have a Problem?
Nests are usually hidden but their location might be indicated by a constant stream of bees or wasps flying in and out of a particular place. Occasionally you can see the nest itself in a sheltered by not hidden position.
Steps You Can Take
Spraying insecticides can be effective if applied directly to the hive during early morning and late afternoon when the insects are inactive.
