Wasps, Bees, Yellow Jackets, and Hornets

There are a few things that can ruin an outdoor activity such as stumbling on a bee or wasp hive. This is particularly true if you have an allergy to bee and wasp stings. For those with allergies, a bee sting can be more than painful, it can be deadly. ATEC Pest Control knows these concerns well and are here to help.

Tackling the removal of a bee or wasp hive or nest is not something the average person should attempt on their own. It takes special skills to know how to get rid of stinging pests because when a hive is threatened bees and wasps can attack in swarms, giving the victim multiple stings. We have the special skills and equipment for successful bee and wasp removal and prevention. Dealing with stinging insects is a specialty of ours.

There are many bee and wasp species. Nearly every species of bee or wasp is prone to attack and nearly all of them have stingers. These stingers deliver a painful pinch and are loaded with venom. For some a sting means a painful bump, but for others a bee or wasp sting can cause an allergic reaction and anaphylactic shock. At ATEC, we want to keep you and your loved ones safe.

The problem with disturbing a hive when trying to remove bees, hornets, wasps, or yellow jackets is that the victim can receive multiple stings. If the nest that has been disturbed is a wasp or hornet nest, a single insect can sting multiple times, injecting venom over and over.

With regards to bees, they are very beneficial insects that manufacture delicious honey and pollinate plants. However, bees can do extensive damage to a building if they nest inside the walls, and some may sting humans if provoked.

One of the keys to successful bee, wasp, hornet, or yellow jacket removal is identifying the species. The species and their behaviors determine the most effective way to deal with the hive or nest and remove it.
