Bee & Wasp Facts

  • Habitats: Bees and wasps are commonly found in a variety of habitats. Bees, particularly honeybees, often establish colonies in tree cavities, wall voids, or man-made hives. Bumblebees prefer underground nests, while carpenter bees bore into wood to create their nests. Wasps, such as yellowjackets and paper wasps, typically build their nests in sheltered areas like eaves, attics, and wall voids, or underground.
  • Behaviors: Bees are generally non-aggressive and focused on collecting pollen and nectar, essential for pollination and honey production. However, they can become defensive and aggressive when their nest is threatened. Wasps, on the other hand, are more aggressive and territorial by nature. They are scavengers, feeding on a variety of foods, including other insects, and are more likely to sting when disturbed or threatened.
  • Seasonal Activity: Both bees and wasps are most active during the warmer months, from spring through early fall. During these periods, their populations grow, and they become more visible as they forage for food and build or expand their nests.

The Dangers of Bees & Wasps

Bees and wasps can pose several dangers to humans and pets, making effective control essential.

  • Stings: The primary danger of bees and wasps is their sting, which can cause pain, swelling, and allergic reactions. While most stings result in temporary discomfort, some individuals may experience severe allergic reactions (anaphylaxis) that require immediate medical attention.
  • Multiple Stings: Unlike bees, which typically die after a single sting, wasps can sting multiple times, increasing the risk of severe reactions and complications.
  • Nest Proximity: Nests located near human activity areas, such as homes, gardens, or playgrounds, increase the likelihood of encounters and stings. This is particularly concerning for children, the elderly, and those with known allergies.
  • Property Damage: Carpenter bees can cause structural damage by boring into wood to create their nests. Over time, this can weaken wooden structures and lead to costly repairs.

Why You Should Not Attempt DIY Bee/Wasp Removal Methods

Attempting to remove bee or wasp nests on your own can be dangerous and is not recommended for several reasons:

  • Risk of Stings: Disturbing a nest can provoke aggressive behavior from bees and wasps, leading to multiple stings and potential allergic reactions. Without proper protective equipment and experience, the risk of injury is significantly increased.
  • Incomplete Removal: DIY methods often fail to completely eradicate the nest and its inhabitants. This can result in recurring infestations and continued risks to safety and property.
  • Lack of Expertise: Identifying the specific type of bee or wasp and understanding their behavior is crucial for effective removal. Professionals have the knowledge and tools to safely and accurately address the infestation.
  • Environmental Impact: Certain bee species, like honeybees, are vital for pollination and should be relocated rather than exterminated. Professionals can ensure that environmentally responsible methods are used, preserving beneficial insect populations while addressing the immediate problem.

If you are facing a bee or wasp infestation, the best course of action is to call Guardian Pest Control to have our professionals remove the hive safely.
