Stinging Pests

What Orkin Does
If you find a nest on your property, removing it safely and completely can be difficult. Orkin can come out and perform an inspection of your yard and home. Once our technician locates their nest, they can treat the pests as well as remove the source. Your Orkin technician 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, you can trust your technician will know the classification and behavior of stinging insects so a solution can be targeted for your home.

ARE STINGING PESTS CAUSE FOR CONCERN

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.

Behavior, Diet & Habits

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.
