Frequently Asked Questions About Stinging Insects

What are stinging insects?

An insect that stings is commonly referred to as a stinging insect, and these pests are often unpleasant to deal with. Stinging insects can be aggressive, and despite their importance as pollinators, an infestation of stinging insects on your property brings serious problems with it.

In our area, there are a few different types of stinging insects that you should be cautious of, such as yellow jackets, wasps, ground bees, mud daubers, and European hornets. Yellow jackets have distinctive yellow and black patterns, while these other stinging insects may come in colors of yellow, red, black, blue, and brown. Contact Trius Pest Management for assistance with stinging insect identification.

Are stinging insects dangerous?

Insect bites and stings are dangerous to deal with thanks to the health issues that these pests bring with them. Not only are insect stings painful, but they may trigger allergic reactions. These allergic reactions may be serious with some individuals and result in anaphylaxis; any difficulty breathing or swallowing after an insect sting should be met with immediate medical attention.

It’s important to note that even individuals without preexisting allergy issues may have serious reactions to insect stings due to the nature of some of these pests to swarm their victims and sting them multiple times. Professional stinging insect control is the best way to combat these insects and avoid their dangers.

Why do I have a stinging insect problem?

If you are noticing an increase in stinging insects around your property, chances are that you have many of the factors that attract these pests on display. Stinging insects love bright, sweet-smelling flowers, unguarded trash cans, excess moisture, and pest prey such as spiders and ants, and an excess of these attractants on your property may result in a stinging insect infestation.

Where will I find stinging insects?

Stinging insects are typically found nesting outdoors high up in trees, around the eaves of garages, porches, and decks, or along the siding of buildings. They might also make their nests in the ground using abandoned holes or fallen trees and debris piles. Indoors, stinging insects typically create their nests in garages, attics, or the space between walls.

If you do come across a stinging insect on your property, it’s important to let the professionals handle it so you can avoid potentially dangerous stings.
