Frequently Asked Questions About Bees & Wasps

What are bees and wasps?

Bees and wasps are stinging insects that may become a serious problem on your property if an infestation is left untreated. There are several different types of wasps and bees, although you'll see some species around human structures more often than others. The bee and wasp species you need to look out for include honey bees, carpenter bees, hornets, yellow jackets, paper wasps, red wasps, and cicada killers.

It can be difficult – and dangerous – to attempt identification of these species by yourself, which is where Green Pest Guys can step in. Count on our service technicians for the proper bee and wasp identification and the best home pest control and commercial pest control advice you need.

Are bees and wasps dangerous?

Bees and wasps can be dangerous when infesting your property, especially if infestations are left untreated and allowed to grow out of control. Most wasp types are known for their aggressive nature and tendency to sting anything they perceive as a threat. It's easy to stumble across a hidden nest and become swarmed by wasps, which may trigger allergic reactions.

Bees aren't quite as aggressive, but honey bees around your property may be frightening, and infestations of carpenter bees result in damage to wooden structures on your property. Professional bee control and wasp removal are essential if you want to avoid the dangers these pests present.

Why do I have a bee and wasp problem?

A bee and wasp problem around your property may be because your property has plenty of factors that attract these pests on display. Lots of sweet-smelling flowers, foods, and drinks that get left outside, trash cans without lids, unfinished wood, and overgrown areas to nest can encourage a stinging insect colony to move onto your property.

Where will I find bees and wasps?

Outdoors, bees and wasps can be found nesting high up in trees, under the eaves of patios or decks, hiding in holes in the ground, or along the siding of your structure. Indoors, wasp and bee nests might be in attics, wall voids, or garages.

How can I prevent bees and wasps in the future?

Prevent bees and wasps in the future by following these simple expert tips:

  • Clean up food and drink spills that happen outdoors to stop bees and wasps from being attracted to the aroma.
  • Utilize trash cans with tight-fitting lids outdoors to stop stinging insects from scavenging in waste disposal areas.
  • Clear out areas of overgrown foliage, long grass, and debris piles and fill in holes to reduce potential nesting areas.
  • Address moisture issues that may lead to pools of excess water that attract wasps and bees.
  • Use window and door screens around your house and keep exterior doors or windows closed to prevent bees and wasps from slipping inside.
