We can treat nests of stinging insects during daylight hours due to the safety gear our technicians use. Nest removal is included in the cost (depending on location and accessibility).
Wasp, Yellow Jacket, and Bee Facts:
- Only female yellow jackets have stingers. This is because males need to mate.
- Wasps undergo an annual cycle. Only queens that have mated in the fall survive. They spend the winter in protected places such as under bark, stones, and shingles.
- Male Carpenter Bees also have no stinger. The female does, but it is rarely used.
- Carpenter Bees bore into wood to make galleries in which they lay their eggs.
- Yellow Jackets are capable of inflicting multiple stings, unlike honey bees, which can only sting once before it will die.
- Bald-faced hornets and Yellow Jackets both can build aerial nests on homes, structures, and in trees.
- Wasps will build nests in attics, barns, boat houses, garages, sheds, and other places where they are not likely to be disturbed. (Source: National Pest Management Assoc. http://www.pestworld.org)
