  • What are stinging insects?

    Insects that sting, such as bees, wasps, yellow jackets, and paper wasps, are considered stinging insects. These insects are fairly distinct and are most often identified by their smaller round bodies, stinger at the end of their abdomen, and pair of strong wings. Many types of stinging insects have yellow and black striped patterning, such as bees and yellow jackets, but other species of wasps have colors ranging from solid black, red, brown, and even blue.

    If you need help with stinging insect identification, contact Mitchell Pest for assistance.

  • Are stinging insects dangerous?

    Stinging insects are dangerous pests to host around your property due to their aggressive nature and their stings. Stinging insect stings are painful and may cause mild allergic reactions like itching and swelling, but they may also trigger severe reactions such as anaphylaxis. Even those who don’t have preexisting allergic conditions need to be wary of stinging insects, as multiple stings can trigger severe allergy issues.

  • Why do I have a stinging insect problem?

    Stinging insect problems occur on properties that are hospitable to them. Plenty of access to food, water, and nesting spots encourages stinging insects to set up their home on your property and buzz around exterior areas, causing problems for you and those you care about.

  • Where will I find stinging insects?

    Stinging insects are most commonly found outdoors. They will set up their nests in holes in the ground, high up in trees, in overgrown foliage, or even in abandoned tree logs and debris piles. You may also see stinging insects buzzing around sweet-smelling flowers, nesting under the eaves of porches and decks, or invading wall voids to safely nest.

    • Replace sweet-smelling flowers in your yard with plants that repel stinging insects, such as marigolds, basil, and geraniums.

    • Make sure that all trash bags are tightly sealed, dispose of waste promptly, and use trash cans with tight-fitting lids to stop the aroma from attracting stinging insects.

    • Cover over compost piles and remove outdoor pet food to prevent stinging insect scavenging in these areas.

    • Clean all food and drink spills, even those outdoors, immediately to stop the odor from attracting pests.

    • Clear outdoor areas of debris, long grasses, and overgrown foliage to reduce stinging insect nesting spots.
