Bees and Wasps

Take the Sting Out of Your Pest Control Solution

Bees and wasps aren’t the kinds of neighbors you want around your house. One wrong step and you or one of your family members can be in for a stinging surprise. But while stinging insects aren’t something you want around your home, they’re still a vital part of the ecosystem and must be handled properly. That’s why it’s important to call the experienced pest control professionals at Bug Mechanic to take care of bee and wasp nests safely and efficiently.

The Problem with Bees and Wasps

Bees and wasps can cause more of a problem for your household than you might think. Obviously, their stings hurt and can be especially dangerous for pets or those with allergies. Beyond the stings, bees and wasps build their nests using wood, which could come from the structure of your home. No matter how you spin it, bees and wasps aren’t great houseguests and should be removed immediately by a trained professional.

Common Places for Bee and Wasp Nests

It doesn’t take long for bee or wasp nests to grow into hundreds or even thousands of individuals. That’s why it’s important to identify and stop nests early, so they can be properly removed before it gets out of hand. Unfortunately, stinging insects are quite good at hiding. Keep an eye on these common spots:

  • Attics
  • Gutters
  • Underneath decks and patios
  • Under roof overhangs
  • Gaps in home siding
  • Outdoor playground equipment
