How Can Stinging insects cause damage to my home?
Stinging insects can cause damage to your structure and landscaping or may even damage the wood. Cicada killers create burros in lawns damaging landscaping and turf. Carpenter Bess boreholes into home facials, wooden decks, and railings. Other species of stinging insects use your existing structure or landscaping to build their nests. They leave behind lots of debris that may lead to different secondary pest infestations. Ants and roaches are among the most common insects associated with stinging insect debris and nest removal.
Stinging insects are parts of the insect order Hymenoptera; their presence around humans can cause fear and disrupt outdoor living and social activities. The most problematic species are the social species in colonies, including bees, Wasps, and hornets. All social wasps and social bees exist in colonies. Colonies consist of multiple individuals of various social ranks. They sting in defense if their colony is attached or damaged by any other insect, animal, or human. Stings are excruciating. Insect venom contains specific chemicals that cause an immediate burning sensation. The venom also contains chemicals that are involved in causing many forms of allergic reactions in sensitive individuals. There are an estimated 500,000 people that pay visits to dr offices and the emergency room each year due to stinging insect allergic reactions. They result in almost 100 death per year due to stinging insect allergic reactions.
Stinging insect nest removal-Can I remove a wasp or hornet nest by myself?
At Environmina Pest Control, we recommend that you never attempt to remove the next yourself nor treat a yellow Jacket entry point with over-the-counter pesticide. Most over-the-counter pesticides are repellant. When you use them, you are making the problem worse by dispersing the yellow jacket much deeper into the structure and making it harder to control.
