Stinging Insects

The term “busy bee” is appropriate as the buzzing bundles of bizziness are at their peak as spring rolls in and temperatures warm up.

Bees aren’t the only flying pests that make their presence known during the hotter months. Wasps and hornets are also making travel plans to set up housekeeping in your yard.

Add fire ants to the seasonal pests and you have the perfect storm of stinging insects crawling or flying hither and yon. That’s why NJ pest control services are busy during the spring keeping yards free and clear of stinging insects.

Some people have allergic reactions to bee or wasp stings, This can be a dangerous situation as a sting could put them in the emergency room. For them, it’s best to avoid attempting to remove nests.

Some springtime pests pose health risks as well, such as mosquitoes which are carriers of the West Nile virus and the Zika virus.

Insects can also pose problems to property. Bees can build a hive behind the walls of your home or in the eaves. Carpenter bees destroy wood resulting in structural damage.
