Wasps, bees, hornets, mud daubers, and yellow jackets
Wasps, bees, hornets, mud daubers, and yellow jackets in Ohio each benefit the environment in different ways but in many cases end up being considered a nuisance pest because of the dangers they pose to human beings. Bees are particularly beneficial because they pollinate flowers and crops and make honey in their hives. Both colony and solitary wasps prey on damaging insects such as caterpillars and some scavenge dead animals and rotten fruit. A professional pest control company should be contacted if bees, wasps, or yellow jackets attempt to settle or build a hive near your Ohio home.
The regular honeybee and the Africanized honeybee should not be allowed to create a hive near a dwelling although most bees are non-aggressive. Africanized honeybees are more likely to attack without being provoked because of their aggressive nature. They must be stopped and removed when they try to build hives in trees, machinery, outbuildings, and homes. Bees are alarmed by human activity especially when they approach the hive where thousands of bees live. This can cause a very dangerous situation where members of your family or customers at your business run the risk of being stung when they pass by the hive. Pruning a tree or bumping against the side of a building have caused bees to swarm and to sting pets and people thousands of times.
The danger becomes even more profound with wasps, yellow jackets, and hornets in Ohio. Yellow jackets form colonies that have hundreds of thousands of members in subterranean, empty cavity, and aerial nests. They are quick to attack and feel threatened if someone approaches or steps on the nest. Wasps tend to chase and sting aggressively and have the ability to sting more than one time.
Removing wasps, bees, hornets, and yellow jackets is best left to a bee, hornet, wasp, or yellow jacket exterminator. Removal by homeowners is strongly discouraged, so spraying them with over the counter poisons will upset them, cause them to attack and swarm in large numbers toward the source of where the poison is coming from. “Smoking” bees out is unlikely to work and is very dangerous. Homeowners have neither the equipment nor experience necessary to deal with removing these insects, and can find themselves in a life threatening situation if they attempt to knock down or spray a nest or hive.
Our Ohio hornet exterminators have experience in removing these pests and have the equipment and controlled chemicals to complete the removal safely and quickly.
