Bees and wasps are more than a nuisance, they can be dangerous. Keep your family safe from these aggressive insects by calling Protective Pest Control at (561) 791-0263; we'll take care of any bees and wasps you may already have, and make sure they don't come back.
Dangers of Bees and Wasps
A constant buzzing in the walls of a home may signify a wasp or bee infestation. Many times individual bees or wasps can be seen emerging from small holes in exterior walls or overhangs.
While their nests do minimal property damage compared to some insects, they can still have a significant impact on the residents of infested homes. They can present a significant health risk to those allergic to a sting. Even someone without an allergy can be seriously injured when encountering a swarm of wasps or bees. Doing it yourself can be tricky.
In addition to the health risks, there are other possible complications when it comes to exterminating or removing a hive or nest. Whether a swarm of bees is relocated or eliminated, the entire honeycomb has to be removed. If any of the original hive is left behind, another swarm of bees will be attracted to the honeycomb and start the invasion over again. It takes an experienced eye to find the location of a hidden honeycomb and all of the entrances and exits bees may be using to enter the walls of a home.
Getting Rid of Wasps
Wasp nests present a different type of difficulty. While a bee will most likely die after administering a sting, wasps can sting a victim repeatedly. Just approaching a nest without the proper gear and equipment can mean a stay in the hospital or death. For their own safety, an average homeowner shouldn't attempt to remove an occupied wasp nest.
Even if a homeowner is able to safely approach a wasp or bee nest, the pesticides they might use can present more long term issues than the insects themselves. Without a proper respirator it is possible to accidentally inhale the toxic pesticide fumes. Inhalation of the chemicals in some pesticides can cause respiratory problems at a minimum. The flammability of the fumes may also cause undesirable, explosive occurrences.
