Honeybees Are Protected from Extermination – Identification Tips

Honeybees might seem like a nuisance when you’re worried about being stung, but keep in mind that they do a lot of good in terms of pollination. While exterminating honeybees is frowned on, there are times when you might need help with removing a colony. Learn more about how to identify NJ honeybees and what to do about them.

Identifying Honeybees

How do you know if you have honeybees? These bees are a golden color with brown or black bands on them and a fuzzy body. They grow to be about a half-inch in length as adults and have a more oval shape than bumblebees, which are rounder and larger in general. Carpenter bees have a hairless, shiny abdomen, while wasps and hornets tend to have a thinner body.

Honeybee Problems

Honeybees usually aren’t a problem unless they build a hive on or in your home, garage or shed. You might also want them removed if they have an unusually large colony or if someone in your home is allergic to bee stings. Leave this removal to professionals to ensure that it’s done as safely as possible. Honeybees can sting if they feel threatened.

If NJ honeybees are a problem for you due to allergies or a large colony, please contact Allison Pest Control. We can recommend a service to remove honeybees, so they won’t bother you and your family this summer. Please know that honeybees are protected from extermination. A service will find a new home for these important pollinating insects.
