STINGING INSECTS

STINGING INSECTS REMOVAL AND CONTROL

The most common stinging insects are bees, wasps, hornets, and yellow jackets.

As bees like dark spaces, they build their nests in open holes like hollow trees. But they can also get into building walls. Once in the wall they will use the wall cavity to build up their honeycomb and fill it with honey. If this continues for very long, the weight of the honey can eventually collapse a sheetrocked wall. If it gets hot as an attic can, the hot wax will soften and melt. As the honey drips down the wall, it damages the wall and can damage the flooring.

However, bee removal is not for the faint-hearted; bee buzzing can be very scary, and if bees feel threatened, they will attack in a coordinated manner.

As for other stinging insects, they can enter your home on the backs of animals or birds that take up residency on your property. If you have a wild animal or bird infestation, then not only must the larger animal or bird be removed, but insect control measures must also be taken.

Ticks, mites, fleas and flies are common insects that accompany more significant animal problems, but there are many others. If you have a dead animal or bird around, the accompanying maggot and insect problem could be pretty severe.

IDENTIFICATION OF STINGING INSECTS

There are many species of stinging insects, however below we provide you with an outline of the most common.

BEES

Bumblebees belong to the Bombus genus species and are round and fluffy. Bumblebees are social and live in nests with a few hundred. They are often found in holes in the ground. They are essential pollinators.

Honeybees belong to the Apis species and are smaller and thinner. Honeybees are highly social bees and live in hives with thousands of others. Their hives are generally in hollow spaces of trees and logs or man-made beehives. Colonies can survive the winter as queens can live for years.

WASPS

Hornets belong to the Vespidae species and have a teardrop shape. They live high above the ground, nesting in trees, chimneys and building overhangs. They are aggressive, and their smooth stinger will sting multiple times when threatened.

Yellowjackets also belong to the Vespidae species. They are long and slender black and yellow striping, often mistaken for bees. Yellowjackets nest in stumps, rotten burrows and hollow stumps with as many as five thousand other yellowjackets. They are aggressive and will attack and sting if threatened.
