Keep Stinging Insects Off Your Property

Bees, wasps and other stinging pests are appearing in greater and greater numbers this summer. Stinging insects like wasps, yellow jackets, hornets and bees send more than 500,000 people to the emergency room each year. While summer is an especially ideal time for fun, relaxing activities in the yard, it is also the season during which stinging insects thrive. These insects can be very dangerous and should always be handled by a licensed pest control professional like Budget Pest Control, especially when it comes to nest removal when hornets and wasps may attack.

Budget Pest Control Services provides a list of reasons on why not to handle nest removal yourself.

They become more active as their hives grow over the summer. Unlike bees, wasps, yellow jackets and hornets can inflict multiple stings. Nests are found very close to your home because it offers protection. Wasps especially try to protect their nests as much as possible, which is why they’re usually seen as the angriest stinging insect. Keep yourself and your family members away from any stinging insect nest found on your property. Do not attempt to remove it on your own. Some nests can contain hundreds (if not thousands) of stinging insects. These insects could swarm and sting when disturbed or threatened. Common nesting sites include under eaves, on ceiling beams in attics, garages and sheds and under porches. Some stinging insects can build their nests in the ground, including yellowjackets and wasps. Over-seeding the yard provides more coverage and discourages these pests from nesting around the property. Painting or staining untreated wood in fences, decks, swing sets and soffits will help keep stinging insects such as carpenter bees out. Carpenter bees create nests by drilling tunnels into soft wood, which can severely compromise the stability of a structure over time. Only female carpenter bees have stingers. Female carpenter bees will only sting if threatened, but reactions to these stings can range from mild irritation to life-threatening respiratory distress.

Homeowners should frequently inspect the property for signs of a stinging insect.
