Bees and wasps inflict one of the more painful insect stings you will experience in Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Maine, and New Hampshire. If they build a nest around your home, you and your children are at risk of these stings through the spring, summer, and fall months. In the heat of summer, they are particularly active and dangerous.
And if any of your family members have allergies, the risk goes from pain to anaphylactic shock. Unless you take care of the problem, you will have to watch out for wasps every time you go outside. To eliminate them, you need a professional wasp management service.
Where You Find Bees and Wasps
Bees and wasps build their nests in a number of locations. Yellow jackets, one of the more common kinds of wasps, build nests in the ground. Rather than a visible nest on a structure, it will appear that yellow jackets emerge straight from a hole in the ground.
Paper wasps, in contrast, build nests out of chewed wood fiber. They may build nests hanging from tree limbs or wood structures on your home. These nests hold anywhere from hundreds to thousands of wasps at a time, so wasp management requires careful preparation and handling.
Perhaps most insidious are the nests that wasps build inside home structures. Wasps may build nests inside walls or attach them to beams in your shed, your attic, or inside your home. If your strategy is to stay inside to avoid wasps in your area, this may not be effective.
Why You Need Professional Bee and Wasp Management
It is not unusual for homeowners or property managers to try to handle wasp removal themselves. If the nest is visible and seems quiet, you may want to try spraying the nest or even removing it yourself. Plenty of websites give advice on how to do this on your own.
Unfortunately, wasps and bees are not easy to remove without the help of a pest management professional. Wasps are aggressive insects, and they react quickly to defend their territory when attacked. If you are unprepared, you may find yourself the victim of multiple stings from an agitated swarm.
