B&B Exterminating Blog

Stinging insects are a common nuisance that can be dangerous to humans, especially if they’re in a swarm or if the person stung is allergic. Fortunately, there are several ways that you can prevent these pests from infesting your property. The following are some tips for avoiding stinging insects.

Prevention Through Behavior

There are several ways that you can change your behavior to have an increased chance of avoiding stinging insects. Always remain vigilant for bees or wasps in areas such as picnics, barbeques and concessions stands, because these are common places for them to gather. Never walk around with exposed feet, because this is an easy target for stinging insects. Keep a close eye on your beverages and always check inside before you take a drink. Using sealable bottles is also an effective way of preventing insects from entering your drink. Avoid wearing bright clothing and strong perfumes to reduce the chances that bees will be attracted to you.

Deal With a Colony

If you find a colony of bees or wasps on your property, it’s best to act as soon as possible. It’s incredibly dangerous to approach a hive, so hiring a professional pest control service is the best recommendation. If you leave the colony alone, it will continue to grow in population and become a nuisance. If you want the colony to survive through relocation, you can contact a professional beekeeper.

Insecticide Spray

Using insecticide spray is an excellent way to deal with a few stinging insects. Make sure to do the proper research to see which products are effective against the insects that you’re looking to get rid of. Be careful when spraying near food or drinks, because the poisons in insecticide are hazardous if consumed. Insecticide spray will be difficult to use against an entire hive, so leave that to the professionals that can deal with it in a safe way.
