The Various Types of Sacramento Bees
California is home to over 1600 different species of bees (University of California, Agriculture and Natural Resources). However, most of those bee species are completely irrelevant when pest control is concerned. So, to save on time, we’ll discuss the three different types of bees you’re likely to encounter in Sacramento and leave the rest of them to the entomologists of the world. When it comes to Sacramento bees, you’re likely to encounter the following species:
- Honey Bees
- Carpenter Bees
- Bumble Bees
Honey Bees and Honey Bee Removal in Sacramento
Honey bees are, by far, the most common type of bee you’re likely to encounter in Sacramento. They live in large colonies (called hives), and the majority of the bees in any given colony will remain in the hive. You’re only likely to see worker bees unless they’re in a swarm (looking for a new spot to call home). Honey bees are predominantly golden-yellow with dark brown bands across their abdomen. They have six legs and are usually around one-half inches in length.
Signs of a Honey Bee Infestation and When Bee Removal in Sacramento is Necessary
Symptoms of a honey bee infestation include:
- Finding the nest/hive
- Buzzing coming from inside a tree, woodpile, your walls, or anywhere on your property where you wouldn’t normally expect to hear such noises.
- Honey or wax is dripping from electrical outlets, holes in the wall, tree limbs, etc.
Most of the time, honey bees are nothing to worry about. However, if you’re allergic, or if the bees have decided that the inside of your walls looked like prime real estate, then contact us for professional Sacramento bee removal services.
Carpenter Bees and Our Sacramento Bee Removal Services
Carpenter bees like to make their nests by boring into dry wood structures. Only the female bees sting, but the males are extremely protective of their nests and are often mistaken for aggressive females. Carpenter bees are black with yellow face spots (only on females) and very little hair. They live alone (not in colonies) and can cause significant damage to wood structures and homes. Their homes are known as galleries, and the entrances to said galleries are usually around one-half inch in diameter.
Signs of a Carpenter Bee Infestation and When to Call Our Sacramento Bee Exterminators
Signs of a carpenter bee infestation include:
- Visible insects
- Several clustered gallery entrance holes
- That’s really it.
If you notice carpenter bees and you don’t want them around your children or pets, or if you’re worried that they will continue to damage your building, then contact our Sacramento bee exterminators right away. Unfortunately, we can’t re home carpenter bees and, therefore, must destroy them and their offspring. So, if you want to get rid of your carpenter bees (permanently), then please don’t hesitate to contact our team of Sacramento bee control professionals for assistance.
Bumble Bees and Professional Bee Control in Sacramento
The third species of bee on our list is the bumble bee. Bumble bees are large (usually around 1 inch in length) and are usually completely covered in black and yellow hairs. They live in small groups of five to twenty or so bees, and their colonies are reformed annually (they don’t stick around long). Usually, bumble bees are nothing to worry about. However, since they can sting, if you have small children or pets, then bee removal in Sacramento may be necessary.
Signs of a Bumble Bee Infestation and What Our Sacramento Bee Control Professionals Do About Them
The signs of a bumble bee infestation (which is a bit of a misnomer due to their colony size) include:
- Visible insects
- Nesting material near shed foundations and building floors
Again, bumble bees are generally docile creatures that don’t often warrant assistance from a pest management professional. However, if you live with small children and pets, or someone who is allergic, then please don’t hesitate to contact us for bee control in Sacramento.
