STINGING INSECTS – BEES, WASPS, YELLOWJACKETS AND HORNETS

Stinging insects include varieties of types of wasps, yellowjackets, hornets and bees in the Las Vegas Valley. We see them mostly during the summer months.

Their stings can be more than just a painful nuisance. The National Pest Management Association reports that stinging insects send more than half a million people to the emergency room every year. People with allergies to stings are most at risk, although anyone can be affected if a large number of stinging insects swarm and sting at once.

Africanized "killer" bees looks very much like regular honeybees - the only way to tell the two apart is by measuring their bodies. These dangerous stinging insects have been known to chase people for more than a quarter of a mile once they get excited and aggressive.

To protect your family from stinging insects like wasps and hornets this summer is to ensure your property is free from hives and nests. Walk around the exterior of your home on a routine basis - pay special attention to overhangs, eaves, the underside of porches and decks for nests. Also inspect shrubs, trees, sheds and other structures. If you do find a nest on your property, do not attempt to remove it on your own. The colony can become defensive and attack. Contact a licensed pest control professional who will be able to relocate or remove the hive in a safe manner.
