Wasps, Bees and Hornets – The Difference according to Manchester Pest Control 0161 448 1782
Wasps are notoriously more aggressive then bees, and operate in colonies. With hoops of bright yellow and black, they attack caterpillars and grubs in order to bring back to their nest and feed to larvae. Defensive, they will sting anyone or anything that gets too close to their nest, triggering a panic response from numerous wasps nearby. Their stings are usually just painful, but an allergic reaction can cause more sever symptoms.
Wasps become an increasing nuisance in the late summer and autumn as they seek food, sweet liquids and fruit to stave off starvation. They can become more aggressive when consuming fermenting owing to “drunk” like behaviour.
Although much less common than wasps, hornets have a more painful sting and are more aggressive. They have a similar colouring to wasps, with bright yellow and black hoops, but they are larger, around 30mm long. When dealing with hornets, it’s always best to contact a pest controller like Manchester Pest Control.
Building colonies in buildings, cavities, bird boxes and anywhere they can gain access, bees are very social insects. They are better at avoiding human contact than wasps and are generally more benign.
Their distinguishing features are a stocky, hairy body, a noisier buzz, and passivity. Their size ranges from around 10mm to 20mm long, with hoops of yellow, russet, amber, white and black, depending on the species. Bees are vegetarian and offer little threat to humans or animals.
Compared to bumble bees, honey bees are more colonial, living in large nests that can number in the thousands. If you spot a very busy nest, it is likely to be honey bees rather than bumble bees. During the life of the nest, the female princess will occasionally take a large number of bees out with her, in a process called swarming.
These swarms contain thousands of bees, either in flight, or hanging from branches of trees. Bee keepers seek these swarms, but members of the public should avoid them as they will sting as a defence mechanism. On the whole the swarms are not aggressive however.
Due to their similarity and size, honey bees are often mistaken for wasps, but the former has duller, more muted colouring than a wasp, appearing like amber and brown hoops rather than the bright yellow and black of a wasp.
How to treat them
The best defence against wasps, hornets and bees is to stay away from their activity and call Manchester Pest Control. Trying to swat them, flail your arms at them or any aggressive measures, will only heighten their defence mechanism and encourage an attack.
