There are several hundred bee species native to Texas that help play a vital role in the state’s diverse native plant communities. One of the most significant processes in maintaining agriculture and natural ecosystems is pollination. In Texas, most plant pollination is carried out exclusively by bees.
Control and Safety
Although bees are essential to the environment, they can become a nuisance when taking over your home or yard. Solitary bees prefer nesting in well-drained and scarcely vegetated patches of uncovered ground. Bumblebees do not dig their nests but, instead, make homes in abandoned rodent burrows and clusters of grass in areas with flowering plants.
To help deter bees from your property, limit or remove flowering herbaceous plants or groups of flowering shrubs and trees. Standing trees and downed wood that has died also provide natural nesting sites for not only cavity-nesting bees, but a variety of other wildlife as well.
