Bees and Wasps
Every summer the Environmental Health and Natural Resources Department
receives several calls about bees and wasps creating problems around county residences. Even though bees and wasps may be viewed as a
nuisance around a home, most of these insects are beneficial and should
not be destroyed unless they pose a real hazard.
Insects like the honey bee are important pollinators, and necessary for plant propagation. Many wasps are predators important for controlling destructive insect populations.
