Bees and wasps are valuable members of the food chain, but that doesn’t make them welcome house guests. The University of Connecticut shares helpful information about bee and wasp abatement.

Bee and Wasp Behavior

• Generally, bees and wasps won’t sting unless they detect a threat to themselves or their nests. Leave hives undisturbed unless they’re in close proximity to humans, such as near a building entrance.

• Yellow jackets, hornets and paper wasps don’t reuse nests from one year to the next. If it’s fall and the nest is in an isolated part of the property, leaving it there may be the safest course of action.

• Commercial sprays can be applied directly to the opening of a nest. Infestations inside the home may call for use of an insect bomb.

• Attic grates, vents and other small openings should be screened over or caulked to prevent bees and wasps from entering.

Treating Bee and Wasp Stings

• If the stinger is still embedded in the flesh, use a fingernail or piece of plastic to gently scrape it out.

• Apply a damp paste of table salt or baking soda to the wound and let it sit for 30 minutes.

• If the sting victim has a history of allergies, contact a doctor immediately.

The word “liability” can strike fear in the most seasoned of restaurant or business owners. Sometimes invasive species can bring liability to your door.

Hive Identification – How to Know What Bee or Wasp is Inside

How to Know If a Bee or Wasp is Inside a Hive?

The thing wasps, hornets, carpenter bees, yellow jackets, and other insects have in common is their ability to strike panic in some people. You probably have a friend or relative who begins waving their arms wildly and running away if they spot a bee anywhere near them.

A healthy respect for bees and wasps is a good thing, but a strong feeling of anxiety at the mention of bees or sight of bees is known as Apiphobia. Be informed and proactive about protecting your property from all types of pests. The following information from the NJ pest control experts at Stern can help you identify bees and wasps by their hive.

Identifying nests and hives

The familiar football-shaped nests with smooth sides house hornets. These insects tend to eliminate other bees and flies from their area and their sting is very dangerous to any person allergic to their venom.

A grey-colored open nest with hexagonal cells is common under eaves and overhangs. These are home to paper wasps. Yellow jackets like to build their nests in old tree stumps, ground cavities, and other structures. You will likely see their constant activity near the openings of yellow jacket nests.

You can avoid many of the problems associated with stinging insects by contacting the NJ pest control professionals at Stern Environmental Group. We will develop a pest control plan that is ideal for your situation and budget.
