Wasps & Bees

There are several varieties of wasps in North America including yellow jackets, hornets and wasps cartonnières.

Males and females bite and suck the blood of humans that frequently causes the formation of an itchy rash.

Several types of fleas attack mammals and birds.

Bees are usually black or a combination of black with yellow, white or brown.
Their body is elongated and winged and measures between 10 and 19 mm (1/2 inch and 3/4 inches).
All species of wasps can chew and females have a stinger

A wasp colony is composed of several queens (fertile females) but also workers (sterile females), and males.

Reproduction between females and males takes place towards the end of the summer, males and workers die and queens overwinter in a protected place. Wasps are considered beneficial species because they feed on many other pests.
