The family of insects called hymenoptera includes Ants, Wasps, and Honey Bees and they are very similar to each other.

 Honey combs should be removed if possible to eliminate the larvae, Queen, and honey smell pheromone that attracts other Bees to the location possibly inviting new or the same colony in.

For example some Ant species have stingers that they use in defense, stingers are also found on most species of Bee and Wasp. Every insect has their own brand of poison or defense mechanism that when administered to a human being can create different reactions depending on the person.

The stinger of a Honey Bee is connected to the poison sac which is also connected to organs in the Honey Bees abdomen. Honey Bee stingers are also barbed so that the stinger and the poison sac are left behind which results in the death of the Bee. Other insects like Wasps have similar stinging capabilities except their stingers are not barbed and they are capable of stinging multiple times.

Ants also sting but can also bite, Fire Ants use their strong mouth parts to bite you while they sting you repeatedly sometimes in the same place. When swarms of these stinging insects come across a threat they can be extremely dangerous! Swarms of Honey Bees in the Las Vegas Valley are very common and caution should be taken when around social insects. Social insects like Ants, Wasps, and Honey Bees create colonies consisting of all females and one or multiple queens and larvae that they protect at ALL cost!

Hives or nests can be created on or in our homes and businesses sometimes in locations very high up or in an inconspicuous area that isn’t able to be seen. The most effective way to eliminate Honey Bees, Wasps, and Ants is to eliminate the colony or the nest. Honey Bees create honey combs and they prefer dark dry locations like inside of walls or even water meters. Honey combs should be removed if possible to eliminate the larvae, Queen, and honey smell pheromone that attracts other Bees to the location possibly inviting new or the same colony in.
