Many yellow and black buzzing insects-variously referred to as yellowjackets, hornets, wasps, and bees-are feared for their stings. Although stings can be painful and cause life-threatening allergic reactions in the most sensitive people, bees that forage for nectar and pollen from flowers around Idaho residential landscapes normally pose a minimal sting hazard. This 12-page publication with 15 color photographs describes the life cycles of honey bees, bumble bees, and their commonly encountered relatives-sweat bees, ground-dwelling solitary bees, Africanized bees). Two tables name insecticides suitable for bumblebee and ground-dwelling solitary bee nests if their locations threaten humans. Generally these insects can be left alone to do their beneficial work.
