Solutions For Stinging Insects In Ventura County
Ventura County is one of the most beautiful areas of the country, at least in our slightly biased opinion. After over 60 years in the area, how could we not be attached to our hometown? With this natural beauty all around, there’s hardly ever a bad time to enjoy time in the yard.
Unfortunately, the various kinds of stinging insects in Ventura County can make outdoor activities dangerous, especially if there are nests on your property. While bees and wasps may be great for the environment, they’ll often present a threat you may not be aware of. Get the facts about proper wasp and bee control before trying to deal with them on your own.
Multiple Stings, Multiple Health Risks
In order to identify a problem, it’s important to know how to spot wasps, bees, and their nests. Bees are usually black and yellow with clear wings and a thick, continuous body. Wasps can be differentiated by the thin “waist-like” area between their abdomen and stinger. The two types of wasps we deal with the most in the Ventura County area are paper wasps (burgundy in color) and yellow jackets (yellow and black).
Wasps and bees are similar in a lot of ways, including their health risks. However, they put your health at risk in different ways. Bees will build nests within your walls and gather in very large numbers, creating problems in your house. Even though bees can only sting you once, you might be stung by multiple bees. This amount of trauma can lead to dangerous health conditions like anaphylactic shock, worsened for anyone with a bee allergy.
Wasps, on the other hand, can sting multiple times. They’ll build their nests on the underside of your outdoor deck ceiling areas, up in trees, and in large holes in the ground. Even though their nests don’t contain as many wasps as bees have in theirs, wasps can issue a distress signal to any nearby family members. These territorial flying insects will attack anything that appears to be a threat to their nests, which can make it incredibly dangerous to try and remove one yourself. Multiple wasps stinging multiple times each can create the same deadly conditions that bees can, and worse.
Bee & Wasp Eradication, The Safe Way
Since bee and wasp nests can be so dangerous, we will respond to these calls as quickly as possible (typically, the same day). After inspecting the property thoroughly to figure out which pest is plaguing your property, we’ll move forward with eradication.
With bees, we will treat their nests chemically before sealing the gaps through which they’ll enter your home. Our techniques for sealing the gaps include foam, stapled string, and silicone. If the bees have been there a long time, we’ll open up the wall, retrieve the honeycomb, and then repair any of the damage.
For wasp problems, we will treat and remove the nests safely. With yellow jackets that nest in the ground, we’ll treat the yard near the high-traffic areas and then remove the nest by pulling it out of the ground. No matter what insect or technique we use, all of our stinging insect treatments come with a 30-day warranty.
