Everyone knows that bees and wasps play an important role in the environment. A few of these insects not only pollinate some of the fruits and grains we consume, and typically aren’t harmful to humans unless directly threatened. When nests start to form in areas where people frequent, however, it’s time to call a professional pest control company such as Dugas.
Because certain species of bees and wasps can be aggressive and some people are allergic to their sting, it’s crucial to enlist the help of a professional to remove bees, wasps, or hornets from your property.
Can you remove bees or wasps yourself?
When coming across a small nest, many people are tempted to spray or knock it down by themselves. This is never recommended, as the stinging insects may be more aggressive than you believe. Some of the risks of trying to control bees, wasps, and hornets on your own include:
- If someone is allergic to stinging insects of any kind, do not attempt to remove bees or wasps by yourself.
- Nests bigger than the size of your fist needs to be handled by a professional.
- If you are still going to attempt taking care of the nest yourself, remember to never spray inside of your building. Always spray at night or early in the morning when wasps and bees are least active.
- Wasps & hornets are unpredictable, and some species can be very aggressive. If you don’t know the species you’re dealing with, it’s best to not take any chances.
