All About Bee Stings

When dealing with these flying insects, it’s important to realize that some pose more of a threat than others. While all of them are able to sting, some are more likely to do so than others.

For example, although bumblebees are capable of stinging, they very rarely do unless provoked or directly threatened by someone. Yellow jackets on the other hand are aggressive defenders of their nests and will chase people for longer than you may expect.

People are most often stung when the nests of bees or wasps are disturbed, and stings can be very dangerous to anyone who is allergic. Medical attention should always be sought when someone reacts poorly to being stung be a bee, wasp, or hornet.

How to Prevent Bees and Wasps

When their nests are in high-traffic areas, bees and wasps are more likely to perceive a threat and defend their nest at all costs. 

In the late summer months some bees and wasps become more aggressive in seeking out food like sugar and fruit, which is why they’re often seen hovering around outdoor picnics or near homes. There are a few things you can do to help prevent them:

  • Remove any fallen fruit, trash cans, or other food sources that might tempt them.
  • Grow plants like wormwood or eucalyptus that naturally deter wasps.
  • Keep lids on all food between servings if hosting a barbecue or picnic.
  • Fix any tears or holes in screen doors to keep them from getting inside.
