How do I differentiate them from a bee?
The two are often confused for each other, but things exist which set them apart.
Are they dangerous?
Another difference is that wasps are parasitic insects and are therefore more competitive. They are ready to sting multiple times, unlike the bee that loses its ability to sting after the very first time.
The pests are venomous insects, and based on the person one sting could lead to a serious reaction. Upsetting a whole nest can, of course, result in many stings which could prove fatal to even the healthiest person.
What should I do when I find a nest?
Contrary to other insect issues that can be handled by finding pest management products in stores, dealing with a nest is always best left to the specialists. Even the slightest wrong move could provoke the nest-sometimes containing 1000+ stingers-into attack mode.
How is a nest removed?
Raccoon In Attic will spray a powerful dust into the nest that coats the insects and kills them. The bulk of the process usually requires a few hours and should eliminate the threat in one treatment. A follow-up appointment may be necessary to kill any still lingering
How can I keep them away?
After the nest is removed, it’s a good idea to continue wasp control in the future. When dining outdoors, try to keep food inside until it is time to eat, and also keep meat covered until ready to barbecue. Garbage and compost bins must always be sealed tight.
While there’s little to be done about the occasional stinger, call a reputable pest management company should you notice increased activity.
