Signs of Bees, Wasps, & Hornets

Wasps

There are a few distinctive features of a wasp that can help you identify if you have a potential bee or wasp nest. A wasp is long, thin, and not fuzzy compared to the bee. The wasp is far more aggressive because it is easily provoked. It can sting multiple times and does not pollinate any flowers or plants. They are predators and can be found at barbeques or picnics. They like to live in the ground and inside homes by building their paper-like nests in eaves or attics. Examples of wasps include yellow-jackets and paper wasps. As they are more aggressive, we recommend giving us a call to investigate any possible nests in your home. To prevent wasp nests before they are built, Chem-Wise offers a wasp proofing treatment plan.

Yellow Jackets

Yellow jackets are a type of wasp recognized by their yellow and black striped pattern. They are territorial and aggressive when provoked, known to sting a victim multiple times. The sting of a yellow jacket can be harmful to people, especially someone with bee sting allergies. Yellow jackets frequently nest in eaves and attics, but are also attracted to sweet smelling foods and perfumes. They are most active during the summer and early fall. Because of the dangers posed by stinging yellow jackets, their elimination is best handled by a pest control professional such as Chem-Wise

Honeybees

Honeybees are the gentlest type of stinging insects. They are very important to our environment because of their ability to pollinate flowers, fruits, and vegetables. Also, they produce products like honey and beeswax which are used for many purposes such as medicine and cooking. They will die after they sting you once. Due to this, they are protected and need to be relocated by a local beekeeper for successful removal.

Bald Faced Hornets

Hornets are the most dangerous type of stinging insect and do not like to be disturbed. Unlike bees and wasps, they can release a hormone that alerts other hornets of danger. Hornets look a lot like a wasp but have a thicker waist, are generally browner with yellow markings, and are slightly larger than yellow jackets. They will feed on live insects which can be beneficial to your garden. Hornets will not produce any honey and are not pollinators. Due to their aggressive nature, we highly recommend calling a professional from Chem-Wise to look at any potential hornets nest. If you have an allergy and are stung by a hornet, you run the risk of asphyxiation and possible death.

Why We Treat

Any type of stinging insect can become a problem to a homeowner. We want our customers to be able to enjoy the beautiful outdoors without any uneasiness of being stung. Many bees, wasps, and hornets can sting multiple times and attack in large numbers. These stinging insects pose the greatest risk to adults and children who are severely allergic to them. This is the main reason we strongly suggest you give us a call at the first sign of a possible nest. Our technicians are trained to spot behaviors and characteristics of each type of bee, wasp, or hornet known to the Chicagoland area.
