The Bumblebee:

The Bumblebee Bumblebees typically nest in the ground, but they can also be seen near your patio or deck. In some cases, they’ll build nests in attics or under roof beams. If you become a threat to a bumblebee , they begin to buzz at a louder volume. They get quite aggressive when they think their nests are in danger. They have six legs and are black with yellow stripes. The best way to prevent this problem is to remove potential nesting materials from the home.

The Carpenter Bee:

Carpenter bees build nests for themselves and their young. They can literally drill through the wood in your home. Because their stingers aren’t barbed, they can repeatedly sting an individual.

They also like nests in higher places, so the nesting site can be tough to reach. The Carpenter Bee

The Honeybee:

Honeybees are responsible for pollinating many crops in the US. They are the most recognizable type of bee. Golden with yellow brown bands, they will build natural nests in the crevices of trees, but some have found nests in the attic or the chimney of their home . They can only sting once, as their stinger tears off when they try to get away. The colonies themselves can be quite large, and removal is often a messy job. The Honeybee

The Killer Bee:

“Killer Bees” are actually Africanized Honeybees, and they can chase someone up to a quarter of a mile if they become aggressive. While their venom is no more dangerous than that of a traditional honeybee, their attacks can be more serious because they often attack in larger numbers. Like some other species, they can only sting once as their stingers tear off when they attempt to escape. They have the ability to build nests in strange places, including old tires, crates, and even boxes. If you are being chased by one of these bees, try running in a zigzag pattern, then find shelter inside a home or a car immediately .
