Hornet and Wasp Stings

Stings can cause painful swelling and redness in the area around the skin. Stingers inject a small amount of venom into your skin. Over time the swelling is reduced and the pain turns to itching. The biggest threat to having a hive in your yard is the risk of multiple stings! When hornets, & wasps feel threatened they attack. All of them! An attack from a hive can lead to dozens of stings all over your body making it hard to remove the stingers. A stinger can continue to inject venom for up to a minute after a person has been stung.

Removing a Hive

With the population of yellow jackets, hornets, & wasps currently on the decline, it’s important to protect them. If you find a hive in an area where there isn’t any traffic, and no one in your home is allergic to yellow jackets, hornets, or wasps, you may consider leaving the hive alone. If you do decide to remove the hive, NEVER remove the hive yourself. 

Yellow jackets, hornets, & wasps are incredibly territorial and will aggressively attack any threat quickly. This makes removing a hive incredibly dangerous. Always contact a professional exterminator who can provide safe, effective hive removal!
