Wasps, bees and ants belong to a group of insects called the Order Hymenoptera, which is one of the largest groups of insects, with over 44 000 species in Australia alone, most of which are wasps and bees.
While bees are vitally important for pollinating plants, including many orchard trees, vegetables and crops that we rely on for food, they can be problematic when they nest in your home.
Wasps and bees encompass a far greater variety of insects than most people realise. They include the vegetarian sawflies which are the most primitive of wasps. The vast majority of wasps are parasites including many that are so small you would barely recognise them as anything more than an indistinct ‘bug’.
Did you know there are native stingless bees that also live in hives? Even less common are the solitary bees, with each female making a small nest of her own.
Knowing which species is dangerous and needs to be removed is where we come in.
