Bees and Nature Bees, winged insects that sometimes sting to protect their hives, are amazing creatures vital to the workings of nature. They pollinate flowers and make honey, providing a necessary component of the circle of life. However, they can prove to be nuisances, especially when they build hives in your home or office. Bees in the Toronto area, along with yellowjackets, wasps, honey bees, and hornets, can pose a health hazard due to infestation and threats of attacks on a building’s occupants. A colony can set up hives under eaves, in trees, in house attics, and, in a busy city like Toronto, within downtown buildings. We are commonly called in for bee, hornet nest, and hive removal, using a variety of chemical sprays to kill these pests.

Hidden Nests Often times bees will hide nests under eavesdropping, under stairs, inside BBQs and in trees. All wasps will defend their nests, but the Yellow Jackets and hornets are the most aggressive. They can be distinguished from bees by their thin "waists." Bees are thick-waisted. They fold their wings lengthwise when at rest. The yellow jacket colony will remain active for only one summer, after which the queens will fly away to start more colonies. The remaining ones, die at the end of the summer, the nest is not reused.
