These stinging insects range from docile pollinators to nasty beasts that can put you in the hospital if the circumstances are right.
Although bees, wasps, and hornets may look similar, and are all part of the same family, they are quite different in the way they live and build their nests.
Wasps and hornets use a much different material than a honey bee. They use both saliva and chewed wood fibers to create a "pulp" material that they then use to build the nest. A honey bee, however, uses a beeswax substance that is excreted from their abdomen. Both wasp, hornets, and bees create many cells, in which to raise their young, however, honey bees typically create extra cells at the top of the comb where they store their honey. Because of this, honey bee hives are usually heavier than a wasp or hornet nest.
Believe it or not, there are actually bees called Carpentar Bees, that can tunnel straight into your home as well! See our page on Termites and Other Wood Destroying Insects to learn more about Carpentar Bees.
