Information on Stinging Pests:
Stinging Pests are some of the most terrifying and difficult to handle pests. They fly and can sometimes be very aggressive. These insects include hornets, bees, yellow jackets, wasps and others. The danger with this particular invader is the fact that stinging pests send more than 500,000 people to the emergency room every year according to the National Pest Management Association. It is incredibly risky to try and remove these pests from your home yourself, and we highly recommend contacting a professional Boston hornet exterminator if you have them on your property. It is important to identify your stinging pest properly to ensure the proper treatment for your home or business. Whether it be to exterminate or safely relocate your problem, there is nothing we cannot handle. Here is some information on stinging pests and what to look for:
- They thrive in the spring and summer months of New England
- Can cause a danger to children and pets
- Stings can cause severe allergic reactions with symptoms such as Dizziness, vomiting, rapid heartbeat, swelling of the face and lips. In some extreme cases, some may experience anaphylaxis shock. Please seek immediate medical attention if any of these occur.
- These pest usually have a colony or nest similar to these:
This kind of nest usually belongs to the paper wasp, common in the greater Boston area. The nest is made up of a comb pattern and usually hangs from branches, awnings, and shrubs. Paper wasps will sting if their nest is threatened, and unlike honey bees, each wasp is capable of stinging multiple times.
This nest belongs to the European Hornet. The nest is made up of chewed up wood and plant fibers turned into paper. Though they usually avoid conflict, they can become very aggressive around the hive and food sources. Their sting can cause swelling and irritation, as well as more severe symptoms for those who are allergic.
Yellow Jacket Nest:
Yellow Jacket nests are also made a paper material and can easily be misidentified as a European Hornet nest, and the creatures themselves are often mistaken for bees. These are typically found in cracks or under coverings, or even underground. Yellowjackets are extremely aggressive, especially in the late summer, and can attack in large numbers and sting multiple times. Yellow Jacket extermination is a dangerous process, and shouldn’t be attempted without the aid of professional hornet and wasp exterminator.
