As the weather warms, the activity of bees, wasps, hornets, and yellowjackets in Tigard increases. Flowers bloom and people begin spending more time outdoors with barbecues and picnics, which provide food sources for flying insects. Determining the best way to deal with flying insects starts with identifying the pests that have invaded your property.
The stinging flying insects that cause problems in our area include:
- Mud dauber wasps
- Paper wasps
- Bald-faced hornets
The best method for dealing with these insects depends on the type. For example, honeybees are beneficial to the environment and essential for pollinating food. When you have honeybees on your property, the best solution may be to relocate the hive. Your pest control technician can recommend the best method for solving your problem and humanely handling honeybee relocation.
Bees, wasps, and yellowjackets build their hives in or under:
- The eaves of your house
- Play structures
- The ground
- Inside the walls of your home
“The ants were persistent, but Jay was MORE persistent! Every time I saw an ant I called and he was responsive and helpful.”- Danica M.
“Great phone communication, and speedy response to my questions with clear answers. They were out here much faster than I was expecting.”- Elizabeth H.
“Jay is the best. He helped us with an emergency animal control problem a while back - It was wonderful because he was able to make it out the very same day!”- Jennifer O.
Attempting to get rid of these pests on your own can be dangerous, leaving you vulnerable to painful stings and possible allergic reactions. They don’t want to be bothered and some types of wasps and hornets can be extremely aggressive. Properly identifying the type of flying insects that have invaded your property and determining how to eliminate them requires the right training and knowledge.
The right pest control method for stinging insects depends on the species, where they are nesting, and the extent of the problem. Some sprays and dusts can be used to eliminate bees, wasps, and hornets. A licensed pest control technician can identify your pests, locate their nests, and determine the most effective products and application methods to eliminate the nest.
Once the nest has been eliminated, you can take steps to make your property less attractive to these pests in the future. Do not leave food unattended, keep garbage in tightly sealed cans, seal any cracks in the house, and repair or replace window screens to avoid letting flying insects into the house.
