The Science

Risks of Stinging Insects

Learn all about stinging pests
Painful stings icon

Painful Stings

When wasps, yellow jackets, bees, and hornets feel threatened, they're known to sting. The stings are painful and may cause a mild or severe reaction.

Property damage icon

Property Damage

Non-stinging carpenter bees will excavate tunnels to use as nests. They make themselves at home in decks, siding, porches, and eaves.

Allergic reaction icon

Allergic Reactions

Depending on the person and their allergies, they may develop mild to deadly allergic reactions to stinging insects after being stung.

Swams icon


When stinging pests swarm, the result is a mass of flying pests that are ready to protect their home at all costs.
