Wasps, Hornets, and Bees
Many of us have been stung at one time or another in our lives, and if we have, we certainly know it can hurt. Wasps, hornets, and bees should not be taken lightly. Care needs to be taken when trying to get rid of them.
Types of Stinging Bees
There are two types of wasps, the social wasps, and the solitary wasps. The social wasps are the hornets, yellow jackets, and paper wasps. The solitary wasps include a few different species, one being the Cicada Killers. The main difference between the two types is the social wasps have a larger population.
Yellowjackets and hornets are far more dangerous and challenging than paper wasps. Hornets will aggressively defend their nests, while paper wasps being less aggressive, will be easier to eliminate.
Wasps nests vary in shape, size, and location. They can be open or enclosed, under eaves, in the ground, around bushes and trees, around window and door frames, and other exterior structures. They prefer locations that are currently not disturbed.
The primary difference between wasps and bees is what they eat. Wasps feed on insects while bees feed on mixtures of pollen and nectar.
Wasps, Hornets, and Bees Prevention
Prevent stinging insects from making a home on your property by:
- Make sure not to leave out fruit or sweet foods.
- Put bird feeders away.
- Fill in crevices and cracks in foundations, decks, porches, and more.
- Keep scented candles inside
* Never stand directly underneath a nest. This increases your chances of getting stung.
Wasps, Hornets, and Bees Removal
The best time to remove stinging insects is at night when wasps and hornets are the least aggressive. Paper wasps can be dealt with during the day, providing all precaution methods are put in place. Protective equipment such as hats, long pants and shirts, gloves, and eyewear needs to be worn.
