Downington Bee & Wasp Control
Bees and wasps can quickly ruin a backyard barbecue, wreak havoc on gardeners and drive sunbathers inside during the summer months. While both species are actually beneficial to the overall environment, an infestation of these pests can have serious consequences for people and pets.
Bumblebees and Carpenter Bees
Bumblebees and carpenter bees are also found in Pennsylvania. Bumblebees are fuzzy, striped bees that inhabit nests under porches, in old rodent burrows and in wall voids. Shiny carpenter bees have an all-black abdomen accented by a yellow torso. The solitary species chew holes in wood, where they lay eggs and develop larvae on beds of nectar and pollen.
Paper Wasp Control
Paper wasps are one of the most common stinging insects. These pests nest in combs of papery material that is a mixture of chewed wood and saliva. Up to 75 paper wasps can inhabit a large nest. The sting of a paper wasp is one of the most painful, leading to a burning and caustic sensation.
Yellow-Jackets in Dowington
Yellow-jackets are the most notorious wasps, and they sting more people every year than any other species. The aggressive pests are characterized by their black and white striped abdomens. Up to 3,000 yellow-jackets can be present in a colony, and the wasps often form nests in the ground, wall voids, crawlspaces and attics. Some yellow-jackets can sting repeatedly, but others lose their stingers after the first attack.
Bees and wasps can only be managed by destroying the nest and preventing a re-infestation. In many cases, attempting to destroy a nest is actually more dangerous than avoiding it and tolerating the pests. Ridding a vent, crawlspace or attic of a nest can also be difficult.
