  • What are stinging insects?

    Stinging insects are any insects that possess venom and use a rear stinger to inject it into predators and prey. Wasps use their venom to eliminate other insects that they eat as food. Bees mainly use their stingers to guard their nests from predators. Other types of stinging insects include hornets, which are a type of wasp, yellow jackets, and more.

  • Are stinging insects dangerous?

    Not all types of stinging insects are the same when it comes to threat levels. Some wasps, like the mud wasp, are passive and have minorly painful stings. Other species, like the paper wasp, are more aggressive and have moderate to severely painful stings. Although multiple stings from most stinging insects are a serious threat to your health, for some people, a single sting is enough to be threatening. Check with your doctor to find out if you have an allergy to venom and if you should make a concerted effort to avoid stinging insects.

  • Why do I have a stinging insect problem?

    Stinging insects do not require much to survive. All they need is a reliable source of food and a place to build their nest. Most wasps and bees feed off of sweet things like nectar, honeydew, and sugary foods. Some wasp species will also eat insects, meat, and other forms of protein. If they are able to find tasty treats in your garden, trash can, and other places on your property, these pests will want to build a nest nearby.

  • Where will I find stinging insects?

    If you see a stinging insect on your property, you might wonder where it came from or if it is living nearby. Doing so carefully, you can check around for these pests, or rather for their nests. You will find wasp nests on the side of buildings, in trees, and in holes in the ground. You will find bee hives inside hollow areas and occasionally inside holes in wooden structures. If these pests are not at home, they will be flying around looking for food nearby their nests.
