Wasps, Hornets & Bees


People sometimes confuse the hornet with a bee. It is most likely you will find their nests on trees and buildings, but they also can be in the ground. Yellowjackets won’t usually sting, unless they believe their homes are in danger. In those cases they can become quite aggressive. They can actually sting their victims several times which can inflict severe pain.
Yellowjackets are attracted to sweets and proteins. This is why they constantly bother you during outdoor BBQ’s.
It can be dangerous to remove their nests, so please give us a call. We are the professionals and have proper equipment and experience for safe removal and disposal of it.


You can easily recognize the paper wasp by its bands. Wasps stingers are hollow and injects venom when it penetrates the skin. Just like Yellowjackets, they can sting multiple times. It is important to note that the wasp is able to send out a call for help to his fellow workers when it believes it is being threatened. That means you won’t just be stung by one, but by many.
Wasps usually build their homes on branches of trees and shrubs as well of the soffits and eaves of buildings.
Removal of the nest on your own is very dangerous, as there is a high chance of you getting stung multiple times. Give us a call, we are trained and ready to take control of your wasp problem.
