Identifying the Right Bee: Asian vs European Honey Bees

Asian Honey Bee European Honey Bee
Size 10mm long 15-20mm long
Color Yellow with brown stripes Yellow with dark brown stripes
Appearance Less hairy, shiny Hairy, golden
Flight Behavior Fast, erratic Slower, more composed

Asian honey bees are smaller and can be easily confused with their European counterparts. They often form swarms that may range in size from hundreds to thousands, as they seek new nesting sites. If you spot a swarm on tree branches, house eaves, gutters, or fences, they could be encircling a queen bee.

Note: Swarms may remain in place for a few hours to one or two days, dispatching scout bees to look for suitable nesting sites.

When to Call Ridapest for Bee and Wasp Removal in Cairns

If you notice bees or wasps in or around your property—be it in your roof, wall cavity, or a tree—stay calm and keep a safe distance. Wasps can be more aggressive and might sting multiple times, whereas bee stings, though less frequent, can be painful and may cause swelling.

Steps to Follow:

  1. Don’t Panic: Keep calm and make sure to alert everyone in the vicinity.
  2. Safety First: Keep children and pets at a safe distance from the area.
  3. Call Ridapest: Contact us for immediate bee or wasp removal.

Did You Know? Some bee stings can cause severe allergic reactions and can be life-threatening. Prompt action is essential, especially if you have young children or are a child care provider.

Sustainable Bee Removal in Cairns

While Asian honey bees are considered pests due to their negative impact on native fauna and potential to spread Varroa Mites, European honey bees play a crucial role in pollination and sustaining our ecosystem. We recommend contacting a local beekeeper for European honey bee relocations. Most bee-related calls in Cairns, however, concern Asian honey bees, which need to be managed swiftly.

Our Comprehensive Service Warranty

At Ridapest, we use specially formulated, pet-friendly products to handle bee and wasp infestations. Our skilled technicians will treat the hive with insecticide and then carefully remove as much of the honeycomb as possible to prevent future swarms.

For outdoor bee swarms, we deploy a bag-and-dust technique to minimise further stinging incidents, while wasps are managed using specialised sprays suitable for wasp extermination.
