Many people confuse wasps and bees and call wasp extermination services for bee colonies and vice versa. Bees are generally less aggressive and unlike wasps, they can sting only once.
The easiest way to make the difference between the two subfamilies is to look at their appearance – bee colouring is duller and their bodies appear to have hair that wasps lack. Also, the bodies of wasps are slender with a narrow waist that connects the two segments.
Bees are usually not considered pests due to their beneficial nature but can still pose a genuine threat to your family.
If you have a wasp infestation, do not try to battle it yourself – call 24/7 Pest Control for a safe wasp nest treatment. It is also a good idea to take measures against possible future infestations. Here are several tips on wasp prevention you can easily follow:
#1 Check for nests – check your home, garden, backyard or any other part of your property that has not been completely shut-in in the beginning of spring. Wasps prefer such locations to build their nests at. An early detection of a nest can save you a lot of trouble later on. Make sure you check your garage and barn as well.
#2 Keep your windows and doors shut – install nets if needed. Wasps are attracted to indoor locations where they look for food.
#3 Secure your bins – wasps are attracted by all types of rotting food. An opened bin can easily attract vespulas that will scavenge your junk for a free meal. This can also lead to a booming population of stingers in your area.
#4 Should you notice a wasp nest, do not try to remove it by yourself. Wasps are easily agitated and once a wasp stings you, the insects quickly follow. Numerous stings can lead to serious health problems and death, even if you are not allergic to wasps.
