Stinging Insects

Stinging Insects such as Bees, wasps, and hornets can be a pain for a homeowner.  Depending on the location of the nest many homeowners can come upon them unexpectedly.  Even if you know the nest is there, these pests will defend against any attempts to remove them. If you suspect you have a bee, wasp, or hornet problem give us a call.

The first step in remove is going to be identifying the location of the nest.  Most commonly you will see hanging nests.  The method for removing a hanging nest will depend on the location. We have a special bee suit we use to get close it needed, however our truck also comes equipped with a parasprayer. With a range of 20ft we are often able to safely blast away most of the nest, and then we can easily remove any remaining pieces.

Sometimes we will see nests inside of walls. This can be much more complicated we have to treat from inside to push them out.  First we use a machine to turn our Green Product liquid into a fog. From there we drill small holes to push the fog directly into the nest, killing or driving away the colony. Once that is done we come back in about a week, carefully cut open the wall, and remove the actual nest itself.

Impact Of Pests On The Home


These various species of aggressive insects post no immediate threat to the home itself however they do make certain areas inaccessible depending on where nests are made. If a particular species nests inside the walls or void spaces within a home, they may easily get inside making normal life inside your home very difficult and in some cases dangerous.

Health Risks Of Pests


Most stinging insects such as those mentioned pack potent venom within their stinger that can cause an acute allergic reaction in humans potentially leading to anaphylactic shock (and in some cases death.)  While one sting poses little risk to those who don’t have an allergy to the venom, a nest that has been disturbed could cause bees or wasps to swarm resulting in dozens or even hundreds of stings. In the past this has led to death even in individuals without an allergy to bee stings.
