Common Types of Bees
Australia’s early European settlers introduced Honey Bees to ensure a good supply of honey. Honey Bees are one of the most recognisable insects. They are somewhat variable in colour but are usually brown with a banded dull yellow and brown abdomen. Honey Bee stings are barbed and, when a person is stung, the sting (with venom gland attached) will stick in the skin and tear away from the bee. This injury kills the bee, but the venom gland continues to pump venom through the sting.
Native bees are found in most parts of Australia. We have over 1,500 species of native bees which range in size from 2 to 24 mm. The vast majority of species are solitary. They have quite small nests and do not store honey. About ten species are social. We are more familiar with social bees which live in large colonies, have queens and many workers and drones. They generally do not sting whilst larger solitary bees are capable of stinging.
