How to distinguish a beehive based on the type of bee

There are several types of bees in Indonesia that are most commonly found nesting on or around your property, including:

    wood bee
    Honey bee
    Bumblebee bee

Here's how to tell the difference between a beehive at home based on the type of bees that nest in it.

Wooden bee hive

Wood bees are solitary bees that do not live in colonies and are rarely found stinging humans. The nesting habits of wood bees are quite different when compared to other types of bees.

They are often found buzzing when building nests around unpainted buildings or boards by punching holes in the wood to lay their eggs.


Wood bees do not eat wood as much as termites, but they can cause damage to structures by drilling circular holes to tunnel through the wood.

To identify the attack of wood bees, it is highly recommended to carry out regular checks on the wooden structure of the building to ensure that there are no fine holes caused by this type of bee.

Honey bee hive

Honey bees have quite a variety of colors, ranging from yellow, black, brown and orange. Honey bees are the only type of bee that rarely cause problems, and are not considered pests because of their usefulness in producing food in the form of honey for humans. However, honey bees will become more aggressive if their hive is disturbed by humans.

Honey bees will swarm to form new colonies when the colony becomes too large to occupy a single hive or there is a new queen.

Generally, a swarm of honeybees will fly to a temporary place before finally flying to a suitable permanent location within 1 hour to a day to build a hive.

In the wild, honey bees generally build nests in tree cavities to hide themselves from predators or natural predators. Honey bee nests at home can be found in tree trunks or fences around the yard or garden area of ​​​​the house.

They tend to choose nesting places where there are many flowering plants, although it is possible for honeybees to build nests in building structures such as roofs or attics of houses.

Bumblebee's hive

At first glance, the bumblebee bee or also known as the ground bee has a physical resemblance to a wood bee, the difference is that this type of bee has a hairy belly while the wood bee does not.

In addition, bumblebee bees also do not make holes in wood like wood bees, but build nests underground or in building cavities that have been made by other large animals such as rats.

Meanwhile, when they nest above ground, this type of bee will build nests on compost piles or use bird nests that have been left behind.

In general, bumblebees rarely cause problems except in situations where their hive is disturbed by humans or pets.

What is the difference between a beehive and a wasp?

To most people, at first glance bees and wasps look alike both in appearance and in behavior. Though these two insects have quite striking differences from their nesting habits.

Here are some of the differences between beehives and wasps:

    Wasps don't swarm around their nests like bees do.
    Wasp nests have a grayish appearance and are generally spherical in shape.
    While bees are social insects that will live in colonies either underground or in trees. Honeycombs are more yellowish in color and are generally located in hidden places.
