What To Do If You Find a Wasp or Bees Nest

What’s the first thing you do when you find a wasp or bee’s nest? You should call Pinpoint Environmental Services!

A wasp or bee nest is not something to mess with, and these creatures can be dangerous. If left alone, they could build up their numbers and become a nuisance. They also pose a safety hazard for your family and pets.

The professionals at Pinpoint Environmental Services will be able to safely remove the nest and get rid of any wasps or bees that may be lingering. They will also be able to provide you with tips on how to prevent these pests from returning in the future.

How to identify a wasp or bee nest

Wasp nests are typically made from a paper-like material, and they are often round or oval in shape. Bee nests, on the other hand, are typically made from wax and are more rectangular in shape.

If you see wasps or bees flying in and out of a hole in the ground, there’s a good chance that they have built a nest inside. Another sign of a nest is if you see wasps or bees flying around in circles near a specific area.

Note: Wasps are more aggressive than bees, and they can sting multiple times. Bee stings, while painful, are not as dangerous.

The dangers of leaving a wasp or bee nest unattended

If you leave a wasp or bee nest unattended, the creatures inside could build up their numbers and become a nuisance. They also pose a safety hazard for your family and pets. Wasps are more aggressive than bees, and they can sting multiple times. Bee stings, while painful, are not as dangerous.

When does wasp season start?

Wasp season typically starts in the spring and lasts until the fall. This is when you are most likely to see wasps flying around. They are attracted to light, so they may be more prevalent in the early morning or evening.

How to get rid of wasps without calling a pest controller

If you’re looking for a way to get rid of wasps on your own, there are a few things you can do. One thing you can try is spraying the wasps with a hose or bug spray. You can also try knocking the nest down with a broom or pole.

Adult wasps are predators that consume sugary substances from fruits and nectar, while the larvae feed on insects brought by the parents. Wasp traps may be used to deter wasps from your property during the summer months when they are most active. However, if you have a major colony on your property, you will most likely need professional help removing them.
