With over 800 native species in Canada, bees are the most common pollinators. Bees and other insect pollinators are critical to the production of many crops and play an essential ecological role. Pollinators are organisms that help transfer pollen from one flowering plant to another. This fertilizes plants so that they can produce seeds and fruit.
Wasps are often mistook for bees and vice-versa. It is very important to get them identified by an expert to determine the course of actions to take in case of an infestation.
