Cool, crisp fall weather is a welcome relief in Tampa Bay, but one thing homeowners may notice is more aggressiveness from wasps, hornets, and yellow jackets. When the temperatures get cooler and their dietary needs change from protein and carbs to foods with more sugar, they may become aggressive as they seek out foods like sweet sodas and ripe fruit.
During the rest of the year wasps are harmless for the most part, keeping to themselves unless something bothers their nests. No matter what time of year, if you have wasps near or on your home or other building, it’s best to not try to remove them yourself. Once they’re stirred up, bees and wasps can be quite dangerous. Call Phoenix Pest Management and Wildlife Control, who has years of experience removing wasp and bee nests.
How to Avoid Bee or Wasp Stings
Bees and wasps can sting without being provoked, and according to the National Pest Management Association (NPMA), more than half a million visits to the emergency room every year are because of insect stings. Their nests can be found in unlikely places so one of the best ways to prevent stings is to find their nests by walking your property to look for them.
It may help to determine what kind of stinging insect you’re dealing with, and you can identify it either by sight or by the type of nest. There are many pictures online of specific types of bees and wasps, including their nests.
