Spring is for picnics. Spring is for camping. Spring is for golfing. If someone were to ask you what spring is for, what would your answer be? Probably something to do with being in the great outdoors. Why? Because being outdoors is great! But, that great outdoors becomes less great when stinging pests appear. Are you ready for them? Do you have a plan? You should. Stinging insects send more than half a million people to the emergency room every year. Here’s what you need to know most.

There is one sure fire way to get ready for stinging insect season; invest in ongoing pest service from a professional. Sure, you can inspect all your screens and make sure there are no holes that will allow wasps, bees, and hornets access to your home. You can reduce flowers in your yard to make it less attractive, and alter your life in other ways, but that isn’t really a solution. You shouldn’t have to live without flowers and beautiful plants simply because they attract stinging pests. Ongoing pest service offers a better solution.

The goal of pest management isn’t to completely rid your property of stinging insects. Those little stingers are actually beneficial. They help nature with pollination. The goal is to limit their numbers to only what is beneficial. The best way to do this is to remove nests. If you don’t have any nests on your property, you’ll only get visits from stinging pests.

Okay. So, all you have to do is get rid of nests. Right? Actually, this is harder than it should be. It would be nice if nests were always stuck to lower rooflines, but they aren’t. Some nests are established in very high places. Others are created inside holes and openings in garages, sheds, outbuildings, and homes. An educated professional knows where to look, and what warning signs to look for. They are also trained to remove nests from difficult places in a way that adheres to all government safety regulations.

Some stinging insects, like the yellow jacket, create their nests in ground holes. This can make them extremely hard to find and even harder to remove.

Before stinging insects become a problem, consider investing in ongoing pest service to keep your property free of nests. You’ll also have protection from a whole host of other bugs and wildlife that can impact your family’s health and the health of your home.
