Protecting Your Omaha Property From Stinging Insects

Spending time outdoors is one of the simple pleasures in life. If you have a yard of any kind, you probably enjoy using it to relax, watch your kids play, or eat dinner on a warm evening. When stinging insects get onto your Omaha property, they make it difficult to spend time in your yard. Having to worry about getting stung every time you step out your door makes it rather unpleasant to be outside. If you've been staying inside because of stinging insects, it's time to take back your yard with the help of Beeline Pest Control.

How To Identify A Stinging Insect Infestation

Stinging insects consist of several species, including wasps, hornets, yellow jackets, and bees. These insects have many similarities and are often mistaken for one another, although they do have distinct differences in their appearance. Stinging insects also nest in a variety of ways. Some build large hives; others have smaller ones. Some live in walls; others build nests underground.

Signs of a stinging insect infestation include:

  • Finding a nest or hive.
  • Seeing a lot of stinging insects flying around your yard.
  • Getting stung by a stinging insect.

Why You Might Have Stinging Insects On Your Property

Stinging insects need to find a safe place to make a nest. If you have an undisturbed tree, an awning near your home, or if the soil is the right consistency to create a safe nest inside, you may have the perfect housing situation needed for stinging insects to thrive near your home.

They also like to live near a good food source. Stinging insects don't only feed on flowers, although they will use those as a food source. They also will eat out of unsecured garbage bins and love to eat food that you leave behind after a barbecue or picnic.

Reasons To Treat Your Stinging Insect Problem Immediately

Some stinging insects, such as wasps and yellow jackets, are known to be aggressive and will attack if provoked by you, your family, or a pet. Unlike bees that can only sting once before they die, other stinging insects can sting multiple times. Multiple stings increase pain and are extremely dangerous for people with allergies.

Customized Treatments For Effective Results In Omaha, NE

You can't take stinging insects lightly. You should address any infestation as soon as you discover it. For your safety, a professional pest technician is the best person for the job. When you contact Beeline Pest Control, we'll send an experienced professional to your home to determine what type of stinging insect is on your property. The kind of stinging insects on your property will determine the control we provide.

  • Yellow jackets are highly aggressive and live in colonies that get large in the summer. We will look for small holes where they live and apply a product to where we see them flying in and out. This product destroys the nest from the inside out.
  • For wasp infestations, we can treat the nests directly. The paper the nests consist of will soak up the product and eliminate the wasps from the inside out. We also treat eaves and any other places where they would generally build nests.
  • Hornets make gray paper nests that are around the size of a basketball. We treat that nest directly, and when we leave, there is usually nothing left.
  • Honey bees are a special case because they are very important pollinators. Because of this, we do not treat honey bees. However, if you have a stinging insect problem that turns out to be honey bees, we will direct you to a beekeeper who can take care of the infestation for you.

If you are having trouble with stinging insects, contact Beeline Pest Control right away. We will safely and completely eliminate stinging insects on your property so that you can get back outside and enjoy your property.
