While the sting itself from these insects is not usually terribly painful, a serious problem can arise if you have an allergic reaction to the sting. For that reason, stinging insects—like bees and wasps—can prove to be dangerous pests.

Bee, Hornet & Wasp Stings

Many stinging insects will rarely bother people unless you bother them or their nest first. Other species, on the other hand, love to bother people without being provoked. Hornets, and sometimes wasps, are actually known to have a temper.

This particular class of insects, called Hymenoptera, has venom in their sting which, unless treated very quickly, can result in death in some people, in less than an hour. Also, some stinging insects can sting multiple times, making their sting much more dangerous. Wasps, hornets, and yellow jackets do not leave their stinger behind in your skin, but the bumblebee does. No matter the sting, it’s important to receive medical attention if you are reacting poorly to being stung.

Yellow Jacket Behaviors

Yellow jackets are thin wasps with black and yellow markings. They make their nests in the ground or inside logs that are near to the ground. They will sometimes build their nests inside of the walls of houses, too, and these can become quite large. Yellow jacket nests are made of a papier-maché-like material, and because they are often at ground level, it is rather easy to disturb their nest, even accidentally.

Identifying When You Have a Bee Problem

Seeing one or two bees near your home is no cause for concern. But when is a larger problem at hand? If you spot bees, wasps, or hornets nesting near or inside of your home, nesting on the ground, or nesting inside of the walls, it’s time to call a professional. DIY bee control can be dangerous, and removing nests should always be left to the experts. Store-bought insecticides are ineffective when dealing with nests, and you could endanger yourself and your entire family if you attempt to handle the situation yourself. It’s always best to err on the side of safety when it comes to dealing with bee, wasp, or hornet nests.
