Bees belong to the order Hymenoptera. The most common bees in Western Australia are the Honey Bees, but there are over 1500 species of native bees in Australia as well as many introduced species.
Unfortunately bees can build nests in trees close to your home or even in the wall cavities and ceiling voids. Not only does this present the risk of being stung, but the honey-filled wax walls of a hive will attract pests such as carpet beetles, moths and cockroaches.
Honey Bees have become feral throughout Western Australia and are located any where there is access to water. It is the only bee in Australian that will attack and sting aggresively and is the only species to leave a sting in the victim. While the majority of native bees are capable of stinging, they do so only under duress.
Since bees are highly beneficial to the environment and some species are under threat, bees should not be killed and bee hives should be left undisturbed whenever possible.
If a bee hive represents a high risk (such as a bee hive in the home or a hospital or near those who are allergic to bee stings), the most effective wasp and bee removal method is to remove the wasp nest / bee hive from your property. Southcape Pest Management offers a wasp and bee removal service to quickly and effectively get rid of wasps and bee problems.
