Bees and Wasps
Wasps are the prevalent stinging insect in this area for the spring and summer. The only bees we have in our area are honey, carpenter, bumble-, and solitary ground, all the rest are wasps. (We do not treat honey bees, you would need a beekeeper) All of the rest are wasps.
Mud daubers, yellow jackets, cicada killers, European Hornets, Bald faced hornets, wood wasps, and digger wasp: all of them have different environments they choose but they all sting others insects for food rather than facilitate the pollination process like bees do.
We treats nest that are on the home. They are treated from the exterior, via the visible nest or entry/exit-point. We do not go into an infested attic. The entry-point is accessible from the exterior. We will also treat nests in bushes adjacent to the house and ground nests of yellow jackets.
· We perform treatment to kill the nest of stinging wasps. Depending on how active the nest is at the time of treatment we may or may not remove the nest
· There are no preventative services for wasps.
· If see wasps/yellow jackets inside or while outside; look outside for the nest or a hole where they are flying in and out. The best time for observation is at dusk when they are returning to their nests. Once you observe the nest or hole, give us a call.
Beneficial Species – We advise against killing mining bees or cicada killers. These are beneficial, non-aggressive species. We avoid treatment unless they are in an area that hinders movement around the home. Mining bee season is early spring. Cicada killer season is full summer. They prefer bald areas in your yard. They do return to the same locations each year and the only permanent remedy is excavating the area and planting grass.
