Stinging Pests: Facts, Identification & Control

Controlling any pests begins with accurate identification. These pests can all present problems for you or your home. For more information, contact Orkin for an accurate identification of the pest problem you are experiencing.

What to Expect From Your Orkin Man

We can take the sting out of summer.

Warm weather tends to bring everyone outside, including stinging pests. While the stings from wasps, bees, hornets, or yellow jackets may hurt, they can also cause more serious health issues like painful swelling, infections, nausea, and in rare cases even death. Not only do you need to worry about the stinging pests themselves, but also about locating and removing their breeding places.

If you find a nest on your property, removing it safely and completely can be difficult. The Orkin Man® can come out and perform an inspection of your yard and home. Once he locates their nest, he can treat the pests as well as remove the source.

Stinging Insect Control Down to a Science

We know how to stop the sting.

In the warm months, stinging insects buzz around your home, often building nests inside attics and gutters, or under decks or eaves. It is important to find and seal cracks and crevices to keep these pests from migrating indoors.

With award-winning training and advanced technology, your Orkin Man will look for conditions that invite stinging insects, tackle current infestations, and remove any nests to help prevent future stingers from showing up. With more than 160 hours of training just in the first year, your Orkin Man will know the classification and behavior of stinging insects so he can target his solution to your home.

Because of our science, research, technology, and training, stinging pests don’t stand a chance against The Orkin Man®.
