How to Identify Bees in Peekskill NY
It’s difficult to identify stinging insects. No one wants to risk getting close enough to identify which type you’re dealing with, which is why it’s best to identify them by their unique nests. Seeing any of the following nests indicates that you may be dealing with potentially dangerous insects:
- Yellowjacket nests. These nests are in a papery substance and are often found within wall voids or cavities in the ground.
- Paper wasp nests. Paper wasps create open, exposed nests that most often resemble upside-down umbrellas.
- Bald-faced hornet nests. Usually found in tree stumps or wall cavities, bald-faced hornet nests also create paper-like nests.

Dangerous Wasps & Hornets
Bees may not sting often, but there are certain wasps and hornets that are infamous for being more aggressive. Their behavior can be unpredictable, especially in the fall months when they begin to prepare for the winter months ahead. Although they won’t usually attack unless threatened, it’s best to avoid walking up to any nests, particularly when someone nearby is allergic. If you see a nest on or near your property, it’s best to call a professional wasp exterminator who can safely and effectively provide nest removal services.
