Stinging insects do their fair share of work for the environment, pollinating to keep the local economy thriving. Even the ones that don’t work with pollen still act as predators for smaller insects and prey for larger ones. Yes – bees, wasps and hornets serve a purpose, but that gives them no right to set up shop under your awnings or in any other nook and cranny of your property.
If you have a nest in your Georgia and Tennessee area home or business, Lookout Pest Control can help. Our bee and wasp exterminators work safely and efficiently, allowing you to live free from the fear of painful stings.
To many, any bug with a stinger is dubbed a bee or wasp, no matter the actual species. But Georgia and Tennessee landscapes provide a perfect home for many species of bees and wasps.
Common wasps and bees in Georgia and Tennessee include:
If you find a wasp nest around your home or business, it makes sense to want to get rid of it as soon as possible. Be careful – no matter what species you’re dealing with, it has the potential to be dangerous. Handling a nest on your own could lead to multiple stings, which can be particularly dangerous for individuals with allergies.
If you jostle the nest, they may get agitated and move to attack. You don’t want to run the risk of a painful bite and potential allergic reaction, so it’s always better to leave it to the professionals, or leave it alone.
So you’ve found a beehive somewhere on your property. Should you remove it?
For honey bees, we recommend calling a beekeeper so they can be handled ethically.
Of course, there are some beehives that should be immediately removed. The carpenter bee, for instance, can cause substantial property damage if left unchecked. You may also want to get rid of yellow jackets and hornets. Trust the exterminators at Lookout Pest Control to safely remove the beehive and keep more from forming in the future.
