Carpenter Bees

Carpenter bees generally resemble bumble bees in size and color. They are

black with some yellow. Most carpenter bees have yellow hairs on their

thorax, but their abdomens are all black and shiny with few hairs. There are

two small species and two large species found in Florida. Females do have

the ability to sting.

Africanized Bees

Africanized honey bees (killer bees) have a variety of colors from yellow to

black. They are identical to common honeybees in size and coloration. In fact,

the only way to distinguish between the two is through DNA testing or

microscopic laboratory analysis.

Honey Bees

Honey Bees have a variety of colors from yellow to black and will have a solid

or striped abdomen that is often encircled with opposing color bands. They

will frequently be seen carrying pollen on their hind legs. They can sting, and

will leave the stinger behind pulsing as it empties its venom into the unlucky victim.
