Your home should be the safest place you know. Don’t let stinging insects bully you into staying indoors. Remove insect nests properly with NJ’s best pest control professionals, Permakill Exterminating.
We’re often told that bees, wasps, yellow jackets and hornets are crucial mechanisms of nature. And while it’s important to protect these beneficial insects, there’s no denying that having them around can be stressful, especially when you have pets and children around.
Not all yellow and black-striped insects in your backyard are honey bees. Bees, wasps, and hornets all look alike and can easily be mistaken as one and the other. Keep in mind that honey bees tend to be the gentler of the family; hornets and wasps are more aggressive compared to their bee cousins.
At the end of the day, these stinging insects don’t belong in your yard. You will hear suggestions to just ignore insects and go about your day, but doing so can put you and your home at risk. The carpenter bee, for example, can tunnel through wood and create holes in your porch or siding that other insects can nest in.
Unlike other home visitors, stinging insects tend to stay and nest in your home for an entire year. You’ll soon find a lone wasp or hornet hovering around your home with a couple of others, ready to build their new nest.
Leaving the nest alone is not a choice either. For instance, hornets can nest in the crevices of your home for up to a year. Their aggressive nature makes it nearly impossible to avoid your buzzing little roommates.
Avoid the sting altogether by booking a swarm removal at the first sign of an infestation. Get on the phone or send us an email to get effective wasp, hornet, and bee control for youry home.
Whenever honey bees are mentioned, people are quick to defend these fluffy insects. In reality, bees, wasps, and hornets look extremely similar and are hard to tell apart. To the uninitiated, a carpenter bee swarm might look like regular honey bees.
Insect control is necessary because you never know what insects are hovering around your property. At Permakill Exterminating, our first method of action when it comes to stinging insects is proper identification. Once we understand the kind of insect you’re hosting, it’s easier to understand how to go about the removal process.
There’s no reason why you should feel bad about enlisting a pest control service. Bees, wasps, and hornets build different nests every year and will have no problem relocating after we remove them from your home.
Unlike other home intruders, these insects don’t take shelter from the cold and leave soon after. Once the queen finds a hole, branch, or awning suitable for nesting, she will call thousands of others and start building a new colony from the beginning of spring and nurture her workers until winter.
On their own, honey bees might be harmless. Because their primary source of food is pollen, they are mostly uninterested in humans unless disturbed. Their barbed wired stingers may only sting once, but one sting is all it takes for a severe allergic reaction.
Once honey bees settle into your home, it’s not surprising to find “nuisance wasps” to follow soon after, which includes Yellow Jackets, Paper Wasps, and Hornets. These stingers feed on other insects, including bees, and might be attracted to your garbage area.
As the name suggests, these types of wasps are incredibly territorial and protective over their nest. Thousands of insects live inside the colony guarding it day in and day out.
Your intention to keep the peace between your household and its little buzzing visitors won’t matter. Once these insects feel threatened, they can release pheromones alerting other insects in the colony about your presence. What was once a peaceful visit can easily turn into a full-on sting attack.
Bees, wasps, and hornets will typically start nesting early in the spring, but can appear any time throughout the year. Whether it’s the early days of spring or the late days of fall, it’s never too late to perform pest control to keep your family safe.
