Stinging insects buzzing around your home or business can be a sign that there is a beehive or wasp nest somewhere on your property. Whether it is in the eaves, behind siding, in a tree, or a discarded or unused item sitting on the property, stinging insects will make use of just about anything that can provide shelter.
When stinging insects invade your property, a stinging insect control plan must be put into action. At Schendel Pest Services, our experienced staff take on the task of efficiently and safely removing unwanted hives and nests.
Structures and materials that can provide shelter for the hive attract bees. This can include miscellaneous items like hollowed-out tree limbs, equipment and machinery on the property and unused garbage cans. If the property has had a previous problem with bees and the hive was not removed, it can attract new swarms looking for shelter. If any remnant of a honeycomb is left in place, the lingering pheromone scents will also attract new bees to your property.
Wasps have an attraction to a variety of things, especially anything sweet. Some attractors found in the yard of a home or the landscaping of a business include flowers, fallen fruit from a tree, compost, and insects to feed on. They also look for warm spots where they can construct a nest. If they smell open food containers and open canned or bottles, these will draw their attention.
Although there are many over-the-counter products on the market focused on stinging insects, it is always best to let trained professionals handle the job. Both pests will attack whenever they feel the hive or nest is in danger, and the collective population and community is in jeopardy.
Honey bees, for example, will attack if they are constantly disturbed while they are outside the hive. Honey bees also react negatively to dark colors and vibrations. They will also continue their attack by pursuing a person or animal that has set off their defense alarms up to a half mile before calling off the pursuit.
Wasps, on the other hand, attack strictly as a means of defense. If they feel threatened for any reason, they will sting the intruder multiple times. If standing near a wasp nest, something as simple as a sudden move can instigate their defense mechanism, and they will react by stinging.
For many individuals, the sting is a painful reminder of their interaction with a bee or wasp. For others prone to allergic reactions, a sting or multiple stings by wasps may cause the person to go into anaphylactic shock and require immediate medical assistance.
