Stinging Insects 101

How to identify the pest, the nest and the threat 

Stinging insects like wasps, yellowjackets, hornets and bees are common in the summer and their sting is a painful nuisance.  According to the National Pest Management Association, stinging insects send more than half a million people to the emergency room every year!  If you have an allergy, you are more at risk although anyone is it risk when there is a large number of stinging insects stinging at once. 

Protecting yourself is relatively simple.  Make your property free from hives and nests.  On a routine basis, walk around the exterior of your home to make sure it is free from hives and nests.  Pay close attention to overhangs, eaves, porches and decks.  Inspect shrubs, trees, sheds and any other structure on the property.  If you find a nest, don’t attempt to remove it yourself.  A colony can be very defensive and attack in large numbers.  Contact a licensed pest control company that can help to relocate or remove the hive. 

There are some stinging insects that a more serious threat then others.  To help determine if your family is at risk, you need to identify the insect, especially the wasps and yellowjackets.  Any trained professional can help you identify a species and what threats it poses. Fountain Hills Pest Control Around Me AZ
