Wasps, hornets, and bees fall in different categories of species as pests, however, they are associated due to similar insect behaviors that requires similar pest control methods. Similarly, they all are important pollinators and feed on plant nectar from flowers, while only wasps and hornets eat small insects. This then makes gardens and those with fruit plants ideal feeding sites for these small pests.
Even though wasps, hornets, and bees are beneficial to our environment in many ways, their home infestation is troublesome for homeowners. Stinging insects use their stingers to defend for themselves and their colonies, e.g., when people get too close to their nests. Even if you choose to leave the nest alone, those insects can attack you and your family.
Common places to find them are dark and secure areas such as attics, wall voids, areas under the porches, eaves, decks, and sheds, or in the trees, and bushes, etc. Their nests are usually close to food sources like flowers and trash bins. Sometimes those insects can even make their way into your home while searching for a place to build a nest.
Stings from wasps, hornets, and bees are usually painful. They can also cause serious health issues, particularly for people who are allergic to their venom. Serious medical complications include infections, nausea or swelling of the airways. Hornets are usually more aggressive than wasps and bees, and both hornets and wasps can deliver multiple stings because they can pull out their stingers.
Below gives you some general ideas to identify the type of insects to access potential risks:
- Wasps are usually under 1 inch or less, which are a bit smaller than hornets that are usually 1 to 1.5 inches long.
- Compared to wasps and hornets, bees are more hairy and fuzzy and appear more full-bodied.
In addition to health complications, their nest may attract other insects or cause structural damages to your home.
