With the return of spring comes the return of insects. Some of these insects, like dragonflies, may bring a smile to our faces, but others, like wasps, definitely don’t. If you have an abundance of stinging insects
on your property, read on to learn why it is important to get professional treatment for wasps and bees this spring.
The Stinging Insects You Might See Around Your Yard
It’s important to understand that there are many types of stinging insects that can make your property their home at this time of year. These may include wasps, hornets, carpenter bees, honey bees, yellow jackets, and bumblebees.
Many of these insects look remarkably similar, even though they are quite different. For instance, carpenter bees and bumblebees are often mistaken for each other, but bumblebees are a helpful bee while carpenter bees are a harmful bee. Bumblebees are vital to our ecosystem, spending their days pollinating, while carpenter bees dig holes in your home’s wood structures to build nests, weakening your home over time.
Why Get Professional Treatment for Wasps and Bees in Spring
Chances are good that you have more than one type of stinging insect in your yard. If you have a flower garden of any sort, you’ve probably seen honey bees or bumblebees buzzing from flower to flower. If you keep your garbage bins stored outside, it’s likely you have wasps or hornets around.
If you see any of these insects, you may be tempted to try to remove them on your own. However, this will probably result in problems.
- If you use a spray, there’s a good chance you’ll end up killing the helpful insects along with the harmful ones.
- If you want to avoid killing the helpful bees, you might take a more hands-on approach to nest removal which will almost certainly result in stings. While always painful, these stings can also be dangerous to someone with an allergy.
