APC Pest Library Bees & Wasps

Bees & Wasps Facts & Treatment Options

Pests in this category–bees, hornets, wasps, and yellow jackets–are all stinging insects. Some are beneficial to your environment and others are extremely harmful. It is important to consult a professional before attempting to remove any of these insects, as they may attack if their nests or hives are disturbed.

Arizona is home to many social bees, which is why they sting to protect their colonies. This includes mainly honey bees (sometimes solitary) and Africanized Honey Bees (AHB). In fact, one publication from the University of Arizona showed that up to 90% of all Arizona’s bees are AHBs.
