Certain species of bees can become pests in and around home. Some species are important primarily because of their ability to inflict stings, while others may also cause structural damage as a result of their nest-building activities.
Adult ants are unable to ingest hard, solid food particles. They ingest only liquids which are sucked from the food material or smaller particles in suspension. However, they can carry large food items in their mandibles, with or without help from other workers.
