If your Las Vegas home is overwhelmed with buzzing bees and wasps finding a solution as soon as possible is extremely important. This is especially true if someone in your family is allergic to wasps or bees. Thankfully, a solution to your problem is as simple as calling Fortified Pest Management for their pest control services. The types of bees common in Las Vegas, Boulder City, Henderson, and Summerlin include Africanized Honey Bees, Honey Bees, and Yellow Jackets.
Honey Bees typically have a light brown color, they are about half-an-inch in length. Honeybees are very social, and it is common for there to be up to 1000 bees per colony. Las Vegas Yellow Jackets physical appearance is yellow and black, and they can be a bit over half-an-inch in length. The ones in Vegas may have white or black colors instead of yellow. With a slimmer waist than a bee, they have long wings that encompass their whole body. Because they have a substantial hind leg, they are often confused with bees.

They sure can be. They will sting pets and animals when they feel threatened. They can feel under attack if there are certain types of noises and vibrations. They are also sensitive to movement. While they have the same level of toxicity in their sting as regular honeybees, the fact that they often attack in a swarm makes them more dangerous.
In the early 1990s, Africanized honeybees could be found in the United States. While trying to find a breed of honeybees that could adapt to the tropics, some managed to escape and interbred with honeybee species found in North and South America. They have a similar breeding pattern as honeybees, but the main difference is their larger size and antagonistic behavior.
A Honey Bee queen can lay up to 2000 eggs a day, and the adult workers feed the larvae with pollen and honey for about 21 days until they become adults. A queen Yellow Jacket in Las Vegas will reproduce in a similar fashion. Once hatched, the queen will feed the larvae until they are mature. A single nest usually contains about 1000 workers. The males will appear in late summer, and they will mate with females that will hibernate through the winter.
While bees tend to have a hive in an elevated place, yellow jackets pick a spot low to the ground. This means that you will find them in the base of hollow trees, under steps or under decks. Other common places for nest building are bushes or the corners of buildings.
A special focus has been placed on bees over the past 10 years. Instead of using harmful chemicals and ineffective techniques to remove the bees yourself, call us instead. Fortified Pest Management will not only remove the bees in the most environmentally friendly way possible, but we will also work with beekeepers to transfer them to a more purposeful environment where they can do hard work like pollinating crops.
