Why Stinging Insect Infestations Are Best Left to Professionals
August 15, 2018
In: Stinging Insects
No one wants to be in close proximity with stinging insects. In fact, we usually try to stay as far away from them as possible. However, in the summertime, that is easier said than done. Experiencing problems with stinging insects is pretty much unavoidable this time of year… or is it? Actually, there is a way! The only way to completely avoid stinging insects this summer is to enlist the help of a pest control professional!
Paper wasps contain venom that can cause a severe reaction in some people. These stinging insects are also damaging to trees as they will strip the bark off of them to build their paper-like nests. You should never try to remove a paper wasp nest on your own because they can be extremely aggressive when their nests are threatened and could end up attacking you. In addition, the removal of these wasps could have a negative impact on the ecosystem.
Honey bees are particularly beneficial to the environment, but they can damage your home and put you and your family at risk for painful stings or severe allergic reactions. Moisture problems can result when they nest behind your walls which may also attract other types of pests. Again, removing these nests is not suggested due to the risk presented to yourself and the ecosystem.
Yellowjackets are the most aggressive of the stinging insects mentioned in this blog and will come out in force to protect their nests if they are disturbed. Their nests can often be found outdoors, in attics, and in wall voids. When their food supplies are low in the late summer, they become even more aggressive and begin searching for other food sources. This is why they are so apt to show up and ruin a good barbecue or picnic!
As you can see, attempting to deal with stinging insects problems on your own can actually cause more harm than good by harming the bees, wasps, and yellow jackets that are all important pollinators in our area.
