Stinging Insect Nests
The photo above shows the “textured paper” look of a wasp or hornets nest, but the nests of stinging insects come in a variety of forms and are more likely to be under eaves of your house or building, near entrances, garden sheds, and porch overhangs. Call Ladybug first to have them removed safely.
What You Need to Know About Bee, Hornet, and Wasp Nests.
The first thing to know about bees, hornets, and wasps is that they are all part of the same group of flying, sometimes stinging insects. Certain varieties of these quick little flyers can be aggressive and territorial, but most will only sting if provoked or threatened. That said, you should never assume that you know what will or won’t make them feel threatened, because assuming wrong can be extremely dangerous, especially if a person who is stung turns out to be truly allergic.
The best way to protect yourself and your family from harm if you come across a bee, hornet, or wasp nest is to call Ladybug Pest Control at 617-745-0044 for your stinging insect removal and protection. Note that some nests can be home to thousands of stinging, flying insects who for one reason or another suddenly consider you a threat. And they can act together as one to try to eliminate that threat. While you usually won’t need us to handle one or two of these little critters, a nest of them is something altogether different, and very serious. Be careful.
