Bees/Wasps/Hornets

Bees,Wasps,Hornets | Pest Control | ExterminationA bee, wasp or hornet problem in your home or yard can disrupt daily life and put both you and your family in danger. If a family member is allergic to a bee, wasp or hornet and is stung, the reaction might be serious enough to warrant a trip to the hospital. A bad reaction can occur even if the allergy had previously been non-existent or mild. Also, an individual's allergy can worsen after repeated exposure to bites. Multiple bites can be quite dangerous, especially with regard to the elderly or small children. Regardless, bee, wasp or hornet stings hurt even without an adverse reaction. If you want to make sure that bee, wasp or hornet stings do not pose a danger to you or your family, let Domtech Pest Control address the problem.

Exterminating bees, wasps or hornets on your own can be difficult and even dangerous. Sometimes a homeowner will attempt to exterminate pests alone, using chemical sprays from a hardware store or supply center. If these sprays are not applied in the correct locations, most of the bee, wasp or hornet colonies will survive. The most challenging nests to control are those that are located deep inside the walls of a home or in the attic. Often, a homeowner does not even know where the actual colony is located. He or she only sees where the bees, wasps or hornets are flying back and forth through a crack or hole in the home. If there are bees, wasps or hornets anywhere in your home, extreme caution is advised.

Outdoors, bee, wasp or hornet nests near human activity can pose a potential problem. Some wasps may become aggressive scavengers around human food and are attracted to outdoor activities where food or drinks are served. Most bees, wasps or hornets will not attack if left alone. However, some people are curious to observe a nest or unknowingly surprise a member of a hive. If provoked, a bee will sting in defense of its nest or itself. Insect sprays should be used with caution. Some of the more caustic over-the-counter sprays on the market can cause harm to children and pets.
