As the season change from spring to summer, its relatively usual that people will
spend more time outside to take advantage of the great weather condition. As if
with the same mindset, this time of the year is also popular to insects like
yellowjackets, hornets, bees and wasps to be out in the field. It is important then
that we are familiar with at least some of them that sting to prevent any
unnecessary harm to us and our loved ones.

1. Every year, thousands of people are brought to the emergency room because
of insect sting. It is highly advisable to bring right away the person stung to a
nearby medical facility because it may be life-threatening especially if there’s
a suspected possible allergic reaction.

2. There are few stinging insects that are known for their unprovoked
aggression. An example would be the wasp species in which they are known
to have 15,000 plus members in a single colony. That big a size shouldn’t be
taken lightly. An infestation can easily take place in no time.

3. If you see a few stinging insects in your property, there is a big possibility
there’s a nest nearby. Common places where you’ll see them include attic
ceiling beams, under eaves and porches, inside the sheds and house
garages. Some insects such as the velvet ants and yellowjackets prefer lower
ground. You should take time once in awhile in checking these sites in your
property to monitor if you already have one that needs to be addressed.

4. Several species of bees like the Carpenters, go beyond the usual nesting
sites. They prefer drilling tunnels in soft wood which is a dangerous threat to
a structure’s stability over time. This can be prevented by treating fences,
porch, decks, swings and other exposed wood at home by strategically
painting or staining them.

5. Not all insects have stingers and most will only sting if provoked or
threatened. If stung, the body’s reaction will range from just a mild irritation to
possibly deadly emergency distress.

Although there are available do-it-yourself prevention, control, treatment against
these stinging insects, it is still better to consider having a professional do the job
for you. They are not only trained to eliminate and address the problem, they can
do so with relevant knowledge, appropriate tools and expertise.
