Wasps / Stingers
Bumblebees may be cute, but when it comes to interacting with them or any other stinging insect, especially wasps, it can be dangerous. Some stingers can even make you need to seek emergency treatment after they sting you. If you have stingers/wasps around your property, the experts at Onyx Lawn & Pest Control are here to help. Removing and controlling stinging insects necessitates professional experience and equipment, which we have.
With how risky dealing with these insects can be, you don’t want to provoke them. These insects get very aggressive and hostile when you get near their nests. While bees can only sting you once, other stingers, like wasps, don’t lose their stingers when they sting you, which means they can sting you repeatedly. This is especially dangerous for those with allergies. If you’re struggling with stinging insects on your property, you’ll want to leave it to our experts. We have the training, experience, and equipment necessary to remove stingers and wasps from your property safely and effectively for long-lasting results.
Types Of Stingers/Wasps
There are many different types of stinging insects that can claim your home for their own. While most people think of wasps and bees when they hear of stinging insects, stingers span multiple species, such as ants, wasps, etc. The types of stingers you face will vary depending on where you live. Onyx Lawn & Pest Control has extensive experience with the different types of stingers and wasps that plague Utah home and business owners.
Common stinging insects in Utah include:
- Honey bees
- Fire ants
While some stingers, like bees, generally won’t sting you unless provoked, others, like wasps, are very aggressive and will attack anything they think is a threat. While bees can only sting you once, wasps can sting you as much as possible. They’re very defensive of their nests and will defend them at greater distances than bees will. Given that they’ll build their nests anywhere possible, such as the eaves of your home or business, wasps are a significant problem.
Common wasps in Utah include:
- Paper wasps
- Mud daubers
If your property is under threat of wasps and other stinging insects, Onyx Lawn & Pest Control can provide fast, effective, and safe pest control services to protect you and your property and keep said stingers/wasps from returning in the same season.
The Risks Of Stingers/Wasps
It’s in the name that stinging insects will sting you and your pets. These stings range in severity from mild to needing medical attention. Depending on the person, stings can also cause allergic reactions that vary from mild to deadly. Plus, they can swarm when they feel like their home is threatened.
The stings aren’t the only risk these pests pose, though. In addition to the health risks, wasps and other stinging insects can damage your property. Carpenter bees especially can tunnel through the wooden structures of your home to make their nests.
Signs Of Infestation
Since stingers/wasps and other stinging insects build their nests and hives in the open, it’s usually pretty easy to find them when you circle the perimeter of your property. If you notice an influx of wasps and stinging insects on your property, you’ll want to look for the nest or hive.
These can be found in a variety of places, such as:
- Under your eaves
- Inside your attic
- Along your building’s walls
- In woodpiles and debris
- In trees and shrubs
- On poles and sheds
- Any location that is easily accessible and generally won’t be disturbed
