How to get rid of this?.To get rid of pest problem under control, inspection is the first and foremost step.

They are flying insects closely related to wasp and ants, known for their role in pollination and, in the case of the best-known bee species, the western honey-bee, for producing honey and beeswax. Bees There are over 16,000 known species of bees in seven recognized biological families. They are found on every continent except Antarctica, in every habitat on the planet that contains insect-pollinated flowering plants. There are different types and in the same class: wasps and hornets.

Bees range in size from tiny stingless bee species whose workers are less than 2 millimeters (0.08 in) long to Megachile Pluto the largest species of leafcutter bee, whose females can attain a length of 39 millimeters (1.54 in). The most common bees in the Northern Hemisphere are the Halictidae or sweat bees, but they are small and often mistaken for wasps or flies. Vertebrate predators of bees include birds such as bee-eaters; insect predators include beewolves and dragonflies.

As in a few other types of eusocial bees, a colony generally contains one queen bee, a fertile female; seasonally up to a few thousand drone bees, or fertile males, and tens of thousands of sterile female worker bees.

Honey bees:

Can produce substantial amounts of honey, as can several other bee species. As pollinators, honey bees are critical to the environment and the food supply. Unfortunately, they also can become a medical and structural threat if they nest near people and buildings. Bees and other pollinators are protected in many states, so if an infestation should occur in or near a dwelling, you should consider contacting a local beekeeper to relocate the nest. A beekeeper can assess the situation and determine if it is feasible to remove the nest. This can be an intensive process, especially if the nest is large.

Carpenter Bees:

Some species may cause damage to your home’s landscaping or may even damage the wood around your home! Mining bees and cicada killers create burros in lawns damaging turf. They are solitary bees that bore holes into wood. Most other species take advantage of the existing structure and do no damage what so ever. Improperly dealt with, honey bees can leave behind honey and other materials that can cause severe secondary pest infestations, like beetles and ants in very large numbers.

The stings of wasps, bees, and hornets are complex venoms that often affect people differently. Most people exhibit localized swelling and burning pain after being stung. Sensitive individuals may exhibit severe life-threatening allergic reactions shortly after being stung. Due to the aggressive nature with which most species will defend their nest, it is not uncommon to be stung by several “bees” at once. Children are especially at risk as the effects of their venom are often unknown as they have never been stung before.
