A common problem in all Tasmanian suburbs is the bee, yellow and black with an elongated abdomen. These are the bees that sting and swarm and nest within your house.
The bee will create a hive rapidly so long as a queen is present. When a queen moves hive she regularly takes a swarm with her to establish a new hive- these swarms can infest your eaves, chimneys or walls within minutes of arrival.
Bee stings are extremely painful and can cause death in people with allergies and when stings have been plentiful.
There are also native bees which cause no problems for the every day person.
