Welcome to My Hive
On our site, I hope to
assist you in "How To" Identify Some Bees found in Ohio and How I can Assist you in their removal and
re-location. PLUS, repair any damage they might have incurred.
Do you know there are approximately 500 species of bees
in Ohio? Bees are beneficial insects that pollinate flowering plants by transferring pollen from one flower to another. This
is an important factor in food production and reproduction of the plant.
Where do bees and wasps go during the winter?

Colonial insects, including honeybees, bumblebees,
paper wasps and yellow jackets, have one queen and many workers. Honeybees are the only species that overwinters as a colony;
they don’t go dormant and have to generate enough heat to live, so they need a minimum population of bees and plenty
of honey, their energy source.
In winter, honeybees
generate heat with their muscles while vibrating their wings, Pellitteri said. “If they don’t have enough honey,
they will run out of food and starve to death, so if beekeepers rob too much honey, the bees won’t survive.”
Honeybees form a ball inside the colony, and then rotate from
the warmer center to the colder perimeter.
paper wasps and yellow jackets use a different strategy. In the fall, they produce males for the first time — all
from unfertilized eggs — and raise a new queen. The new queen emerges, mates and crawls under a rock or inside tree
bark to spend the winter in a form of hibernation.
How To Identify Bees From Their "Mimics"
All bees have three (3) body segments (parts). A head, the thorax, and the abdomen. The head is where the large multi-faceted
eyes are located. also long slender antennae, and cutting mouthparts are found. Then thorax is the middle segment where
the wings and legs are attached. Last is the abdomen, for which female bees ends in a sting. Unique to female bees are what
looks like dense broom bristles called pollen-carrying hairs. These may be found on the rear legs or on the underside of the
abdomen. Some though, will carry pollen in an almost hairless, flatten pollen basket on the rear legs.
