The Buzz On The Bee Situation In Cape May, New Jersey

This year has been a strange one and it recently got a little stranger. Bees swarmed the beach yesterday in Cape May, New Jersey. Everyone has been buzzing about it and it’s easy to see why. Just watch the video below from NJ.com’s Facebook page. It’s pretty crazy!

Wasps, however, are not protected. There are 4 common wasps and 3 primary bee varieties in New Jersey – Honeybees, Bumble Bees, and Carpenter Bees. Honeybees are often gold with brown stripes, are just about half an inch long, and have little hairs all over their bodies. While bees are capable of stinging, this is rare. If you’ve been stung, it’s more likely to be by a wasp – yellow jackets in particular.
