BEES ARE BENEFICIAL EXCEPT WHEN THEY ARE IN YOUR HOUSE

Honey Bees get their name from the sweet yellowish to brownish fluid they make from the nectar of flowers and use as food. Honey Bees not only provide honey and wax, but as pollinators are of far greater importance. They are responsible for a large share of insect stings, although many stings blamed on bees are actually done by yellow jackets. More people die of allergic reaction to Bee stings than of rattle snake bites each year. Bees can only sting you once. When stinging them pull away and leave the back half of their abdomen, with the poison sack and the stinger imbedded in your skin. This action kills s the insect that stung you. This poison sack can continue to inject poison into your body for a few minutes after the sting. They are best controlled at night using dusts and contact sprays. Queen Bees lay as many as 1,500 to 2000 eggs per day, and may live as long as 5 years. Worker Bees only live 5 to 7 weeks in the summer and shorter during the winter.
