While honeybees are essential for agriculture, wasps and hornets are more than just pests. For some people who are allergic, a sting from them can be life-threatening. When bees become a nuisance around your home or business, you need to remove the hive. But when is it time to call a stinging insects exterminator? We’ll help you answer that question below.
When to Call a Stinging Insects Exterminator
- When you can’t tell what kind of bee, wasp or hornet it is.
It’s important to be able to identify what kind of insect you’re dealing with. Although honeybees do sting, they are beneficial as pollinators and their numbers are declining, and efforts should be made not to harm any honeybees. If you have honeybees, a beekeeper can empty out the hive and rehome the bees.
- When you have an allergy.
If you have a bee allergy, chances are that you’re allergic to all stinging insects in that family. Even if you’re only allergic to a certain type, it’s better safe than sorry. Call a trusted stinging insects exterminator to avoid a trip to the E.R.
- When the stinging insect nest is not easily accessible or found.
You often will find stinger nests in corners of exterior buildings or trees. If the nest is on the second story of a house, it will be difficult to treat by yourself. If you can’t see the nest but have had problems with being stung, you might have an underground yellowjacket nest. With any nest that’s difficult to find or approach, call an expert. You’ll rest easy knowing the yellow jackets, wasps or hornets are taken care of once and for all.
- When they’re a nuisance at a business.
You don’t want your customers or employees being stung at your business, especially when you might not know if someone is highly allergic. And you definitely don’t want to spend your weekends or evenings hunting for the nest(s). A stinging insects exterminator can inspect for any and all hives or nests and remove them for good. If you tend to have frequent problems, you should consider a preventative service from an exterminator to stay ahead of wasps, yellow jackets and hornets.
