• There are fewer things that can ruin an outdoor activity than stumbling on a bee or wasp hive. This is particularly true if you have an allergy to bee and wasp stings. For those with allergies, a bee sting can be more than painful, it can be deadly. Tackling the removal of a bee or wasp hive or nest is not something the average person should attempt on their own. It takes special skills to know how to get rid of stinging pests because when a hive is threatened, bees and wasps can attack in swarms, giving the victim multiple stings. Chem-Tech Pest Solutions has the special skills and equipment for successful bee and wasp removal and prevention.

    The Most Common Stinging Insects in Nebraska:

    • Honey bees are the most common stinging bee in Nebraska. They typically become the most bothersome when they invade residential homes and establish a colony, building combs of wax containing honey, pollen and brood in wall spaces. Once a colony is established, it is difficult to remove because it usually involves structural modification of the building. To be effective, the honey and wax should be removed along with the bees or the site will remain attractive to other swarms, in addition to ants, carpet beetles, flies and cockroaches.
    • Yellow Jackets are also a well known species of the stinging insect. They feed on insects, spiders and a variety of food items. They are medium-sized, stout-bodied, and black with bright yellow bands. They are typically found nesting in rodent burrows, compost piles, wood piles and wall voids. Occasionally, wasps will build aerial nests in garages, crawl spaces, or other enclosed areas. When Yellow Jackets are disturbed, it is best to give them plenty of space as they are capable of inflicting painful and unlike the honey bee, multiple stings. There are multiple strategies to reduce the present of Yellow Jackets near your residence, including disposing waste in covered containers, or using baited traps. When nests are initiated in the spring, colonies have the potential to produce up to 200 individuals by summer’s end. Wasps are not usually considered overly aggressive and usually only pose a threat when their nests are disturbed. The best approach for controlling nests is to treat with liquid or aerosol jet insecticide sprays after dark.
