While bees and wasps are considered as beneficial to the natural environment because they help pollinate plants and flowers, the stinging insects can pose a significant threat to the loved ones on your property should they cross paths.
If you discover bees and wasps nesting near your home, you should be aware of the risks they can pose to you and your family and know when to call for professional bee and wasp control services.
The Deadly Dangers of Bees and Wasps
Both bees and wasps are stinging insects that will use their stinger to inject venom into a victim if they feel threatened. While their territorial behaviors and painful stings are dangerous in and of itself, bee and wasp stings can be deadly to those with severe allergies. Furthermore, if someone stumbles upon a bee or wasp nest they can quickly become swarmed by the startled pests and suffer many poisonous stings that can also become life-threatening. Therefore, you will want to avoid being stung by a wasp or bee at all costs.
How to Avoid a Bee or Wasp Sting
The last thing you want is an angry swarm of bees or wasps on your property, however avoiding them can prove difficult. Some precautions you can take to avoid being stung include:
- Not mowing the lawn while bees or wasps are collecting nectar
- Wearing shoes while walking in your yard
- Keeping sugary drinks like sodas and juices covered while outside
- Not disturbing an active hive or nest
If you spot a bee or wasp nest on your property, it is best to keep a safe distance and not attempt to remove the pests on your own. Instead, contact a professional bee or wasp exterminator to safely handle the job for you.
