Bees and Wasps
Welcome to Beesandwasp.com, your ultimate source for information on bees and wasps. There are several and unique species of insects in nature that we sometimes even don´t know that exist right now. That would be because in this great planet called Earth, there are places that given their geographic conditions are virtually inaccessible. However, in this opportunity we will talk about species that we know very well and we have tried to catalog as much as possible: Bees and wasps.
Every time a beekeeper gets to a house and starts assessing the situation of whatever insect infestation is around there, the first and crucial step that has to be taken is the Bee and Wasp Identification.
We could say many things about that concept, but due to space limitations we will surround the idea on the basic topics. When we talk about bee and wasp identification, we are talking about the basic rule to engage bees or wasps; the basic rule of engaging anything actually. The old Chinese war code, the Tsun Zsu – The Art of War, establishes that one of the most important rules of battle is “know your enemy first”. Well, that is what bee and wasp identification basically is.
Bee control is all about balance and equilibrium by following determined guidelines. And the first one of them is definitely prevention. We have to prevent before complaining for having a bee hive in our back yard. Of course, it is as simple as checking once or twice a year, thoroughly, your home, porch, rooms, garage, patio and every single void at home for hives or bees if you ever feel that too many bees are flying around.
Upon arriving to the client’s property, home or business, the first thing is to be sure of what kind or type of insect we are dealing with. Of course, and naturally, bees receive a different treatment than wasps. We all know the importance of bees in our society and industry, they contribute largely to the environmental care, and at the same time they give us a raw material/final product that generates lots of income and moves many industries, and that would be bee honey. Meanwhile, wasps are not that beneficial, and they become much more aggressive than regular honey bees.
There are bees that die defending their hive but not because they are killed or eaten (by the way, that is possible), but because when they sting, they die, and that is just the way nature created them. So, the Bee Chart lets us understand what type of bee we are dealing with once we have acknowledged and recognized that same type of bee. After the proper use of the Bee Chart we know if that bee is steam-resistant, or maybe we will know what thing could make their relocating easier without damaging them.
