Why Stinging Insect Infestations Are Best Left to the Pros

August 31, 2018


We all love gardens, whether it’s our own or not, because they contain beautiful flowers, plants or fresh vegetables and herbs that supply us with delicious foods. We also enjoy all that nature has to offer: the shade of a tree, the dew on the grass, protection from wind, and the privacy that purposeful landscaping can provide. Much of this is all possible due to the natural balance of the biological organisms in our environment. If the delicate balance of our ecosystem is thrown off, there can be devastating effects. Part of that balance includes pollination which is provided in part by the stinging insects around our homes and yards, which means that killing all the stinging insects in your yard is not a realistic solution to your pest problem.

To be honest, no one really wants stinging insects hanging around their homes and threatening your friends and family everytime they go outdoors. In fact, these pests can force many people to stay inside their home instead of spending time outside and enjoying the sunshine due to allergies, fear, or both! You may be tempted to search the internet for all kinds of DIY solutions to learn how you can eliminate their nests and kill them off so they will stop attacking and stinging everyone that gets too close to their nests. You may be tempted to use harsh chemicals in order to eliminate these pests. However, those products can harm the surrounding environment as well as animals, pets, and even humans! You may also read that knocking down their nests will help get rid of them, but doing so can actually be extremely dangerous! Some stinging insects can be extremely territorial and will become very aggressive and attack any perceived threat to their nests. And in the end, they will probably just return and build another nest in a new location on your property.
