What To Do About A Bee Problem In Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
Do you have a bee infestation problem on your Pittsburgh property? While most of the pests you have to deal with in and around your home are only unsanitary and inconvenient, bees and wasps are among the few that are dangerous. Bee and wasp stings can be incredibly painful, and if you have an allergy to them, they can even be deadly.
If you have a swarm of bees in or around your home, you should never attempt to tackle it yourself. Instead, you need the wasp nest and beehive experts with the knowledge, tools, and experience to rid your home or business of bees and wasps. You need to call Pittsburgh Pest Control.
Bees & Wasps Common To Pittsburgh
Many types of bees and wasps populate Pittsburgh and the surrounding areas, and all of them can sting you or your family members. At the first sign of bee or wasp infestation, whether it be a nest, a hive, or a swarm, you need to contact Pittsburgh Pest Control. Our experts can recognize all the different types of stinging insects that may be plaguing you, and we know how to find them and get rid of them fast.
Africanized (Killer) Honey Bee
Of the bees in the Pittsburgh area, 95% are Africanized honey bees. These bees are known to have a lethal sting, and they are very aggressive if provoked or disturbed near their nest. They are quick to swarm and attack and will even chase their target for miles, which is why we advise you to let a professional exterminator deal with them.
The American bumblebee is probably one of the most well-known of the stinging insects. These fuzzy yellow and black bees are mostly harmless, but the queen and workers can sting if their nest is threatened. The bumblebee’s stinger doesn’t have barbs as honeybees do, so it can sting repeatedly. Bumblebees do pose a threat to people with allergies. If you see a hive on your property, please contact our bee exterminators for bee removal.
Bald-faced hornets, which are actually a type of wasp and not a true hornet, are black and white stinging insects similar to yellow jackets. Unlike bumblebees, these pests are quite aggressive and will sting repeatedly. These highly social insects will attack as a group if they perceive a threat to their nest. Although bald-faced hornets help control other types of pests in the environment, the danger of being stung can outweigh their usefulness. Contact us if you notice the oval nests of bald-faced hornets near your home.
These aggressive pests can deliver stings repeatedly, making them one of the most feared insects in the animal kingdom. Yellow jackets can be very quick to attack when their nests are disturbed. There are several common types of yellow jackets in Pennsylvania, including the common yellow jacket, aerial yellow jacket, and German yellow jacket. Because these stinging insects pose a serious, even deadly, health threat, call Pittsburgh Pest Control at the first sign of them.
These pests may look like fancy ants, but beware: this red and black insect is a vicious, stinging wasp. The females have stingers but do not have wings, while males have wings but no stingers. Here in Pennsylvania, there are dozens of velvet ant species, all of which have few natural predators due to their tough exoskeletons. If you need expert wasp nest removal, please contact us.
Often mistaken for American bumblebees due to their similar appearance, carpenter bees pose more of a threat to your home than your health. Their large jaws are powerful enough to chew through wood and damage your home’s exterior.
