How Did I Get Stinging Insects?
Bees, hornets, wasps, and yellow jackets are always looking for the perfect place to build their hives. They like to build nests or hives inside attics and gutters, or under decks or eaves. These locations are desirable to the insects as they provide natural structural protection.
Why Is It So Difficult To Get Rid Of Stinging Insects?
Killing these stinging insects is potentially dangerous. Not only can they attack, but the locations of the nest and hives may often be in high or difficult to reach areas, putting you at an added disadvantage when they respond to your attempts to destroy the hive. Chemical sprays may not kill these insects and just further aggravate them to attack. It is best and safest to hire a reputable pest control company.
