Stinging Insects

Nothing is worse than getting stung by bees and wasps. Sure, you could have just stepped on one tiptoeing through the tulips. Most likely, you got too close to their nest. Now you want it gone immediately. Treating an inground stinging insect nest is tricky. It is likely that they found an old rodent burrow to call home. And you unexpectedly found their home while doing yard work. That stings! Sometimes they are in your house walls. Sadly, the products sold in stores for wasps and hornets do not work in these instances. You will need to call a Cleveland bee and wasp exterminator. No matter where the nest is, Lakewood Exterminating has you covered.

Stinging Insect FAQ

Can You Remove a Wasp Nest Yourself?2023-07-24T19:36:26-04:00

You should not remove a wasp nest yourself. Unless you have training and the right equipment, hire an exterminator.

  • Treating stinging insect nests requires protective clothing and application equipment. Purchasing these tools costs more than hiring a wasp exterminator.
  • Store-bought pesticides can agitate the nests. If these nests are in the wall, you can drive stinging insects into your home.
  • You are making yourself vulnerable to bee stings if you treat a nest yourself. You could be allergic or develop an allergy to bee stings. This can be life threatening.
How Do You Kill A Wasp Nest Without Getting Stung2023-07-24T19:25:40-04:00

In order not to get stung by a wasp nest, you will have to wear protective clothing. You can still get stung through a bee suit. Yet, this is the best way to protect yourself from stings. Homeowners should not attempt to treat wasp nests unless they have a bee suit.

Nighttime is the best time to treat a wasp nest, since they are all back at the nest. Fast-acting insecticides will kill them before they can leave the nest to sting. If you do not have a bee suit and choose to do it yourself, then treat at nighttime.

You will also want to keep your distance. That is why wasp and hornet spray is advertised to reach the nest from a distance. The further away you are, the less likely they will sting. Bee exterminators use bee poles to provide distance between themselves and the nest.

Wear white. There is a reason bee suits are white. This is the least aggressive color in the minds of bees and wasps. This isn’t to say a white t-shirt will protect you from stings. But a white bee suit will.

Will Wasps Return To A Treated Nest?2023-07-24T18:57:45-04:00

Stinging insects are alerted when their nest is under attack. Any wasp is within 1000 feet of its nest at all times. So they return to a treated nest quickly. Bees and hornets travel further and might not make it back by the time you remove the nest.

Let’s say we treated a nest and removed it. There would likely be some stinging insects buzzing around after the nest removal. In most cases, the Queen has been removed with the nest. Once this happens, the leftover workers have no purpose and will dissipate. It is still wise to treat the surface that the nest was built on with a residual insecticide. This will prevent them from rebuilding it. Make sure you do this for paper wasps. Their nests are not enclosed, so the queen can fly away before the nest is treated. Oftentimes, there is more than one queen per nest. So there is a greater probability that they will rebuild their wasp nests.

In conclusion, stinging insects return to treated nests. Expect to see them come back to protect their nest. Activity should stop by the following day. Make sure you treat the area where the nest was with a residual insecticide.
