The Problem: Stinging Pests
Multiple species of bees and wasps exist – nearly all of them have stingers and can attack you, especially if threatened. Their venom-filled stingers will inflict a nasty pinch, causing a painful bump for many people. For others who are allergic to their stings, more serious side effects can occur, such as anaphylactic shock.
Removing a hive can be risky for someone who is not experienced performing bee and wasp removal; a person can be stung a number of times. When dealing with wasps or hornets, just one pest can inflict multiple stings, continuously administering its venom.
Know the Types of Bees and Wasps
Certain bee and wasp species are prone to inflicting stings in swarms include:
- Africanized Honey Bee: also called a “killer bee,” Africanized Honey Bees are a cross of European and African bee subspecies. These stinging bees are capable of causing serious harm to humans. They are extremely aggressive and will attack in droves when their hives or nests are disturbed, or they are subjected to loud noises. These bees are not only a threat to the lives of those who are allergic, but also humans and animals who would have difficulty escaping their attacks, including children, senior citizens and the handicapped. When threatened, they may attack in large numbers, traveling 50 or more yards to chase down whatever or whomever they see as a threat, inflicting hundreds of bee stings.
- Yellow Jackets: Yellow jackets are a well-known example of an aggressive stinging insect species. Because their stings can be very painful, it is best to avoid their hives and nests.
- Hornets: If their hive is threatened or a drone hornet killed, these winged pests will attack. Since their stingers do not have barbs like honey bees’ stingers do, they can inflict multiple stings, as their stingers are not lost.
Bees are very beneficial to us and our environment, as they pollinate plants and create tasty honey. But, when they take up residence inside the walls of a building, they can do great damage. They may also sting when provoked.
In order to remove bees and wasps effectively, the species needs to be accurately identified. The type of bee or wasp will tell our professionals about its behaviors so we can utilize treatment methods that have been proven effective in removing hives and nests.
Price Termite & Pest Control treats several types of stinging insects within our service area, including:
- Honey bees
- Carpenter bees
- Paper wasps
- Yellow jackets
Be Aware of Bee and Wasp Sting Allergies
Some people are either hypersensitive or allergic to bee stings. Should a bee sting someone who is sensitive or who has an allergy, it can trigger a medical emergency. Anaphylactic shock, a rare but life-threatening symptom, can result. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, as many as 100 people die from insect stings each year in the U.S.
To prevent such medical emergencies, have hives and nests relocated by skilled professionals. The stinging insect experts at Price Termite & Pest Control can assist you safely and effectively.
If you encounter a single stinging insect inside your home and are concerned about being stung, simply squirt it with an aerosol spray can; this will immobilize its wings, and the insect will fall. You can then remove the insect from your home. Take care to avoid touching the stinger.
