Stinging insects are tricky pests that are found in all kinds of nooks and crannies, like siding openings, the underside of exterior furniture, and other places that are not immediately visible, increasing your chances of accidentally startling one and getting stung.
While bees might seem scary at first glance, they actually work hard for us every day! A third of all agricultural output in the United States depends on pollination, which is done primarily by bees. So if you are a fan of food, including what you grow at home, you should also be a fan of bees!
Not all of the bees buzzing around are the same, however. In Pennsylvania alone, there are over 300 different native species who are each unique. Bees in Downingtown include:
The good news is that all of these bees are unlikely to sting people, so you do not have to be afraid for the safety of your family if you see a nest on your property. Masters Touch wants to BEE responsible and do our very best to protect our pollinators!
At Masters Touch Pest Solutions, we are committed to maintaining our natural environment, and part of that is protecting bees. Our program for bees nest removal in Downingtown uses the latest technology and techniques that limit the risk of bees being harmed in the process. We hope you will join us in caring about our environment by caring about bees, and we’d love to answer any questions about our process.
When warm weather comes, you are not the only one who enjoys an outdoor gathering. Wasps and hornets are attracted to the sugars in the food you have on display, zeroing in on the sweets that are their source of energy. They are also more aggressive than bees, stinging with little to no provocation. The threat they pose to humans is greater, making efficient wasp and hornet removal important.
Paper wasps are the most common wasp in Pennsylvania, so our wasp exterminators in Downingtown know the ins and outs of their behavior. They create an open nest with hexagonal cells in an umbrella shape, usually in a sheltered area like the eaves of a house, tree branches, or even the open end of a pipe. They get their name through how their nests are built, which involves the queen combining wood fibers and her saliva to create a soft paper pulp that is then shaped into the nest by workers.
While their colony size is relatively small, ranging from 12 to 100, it is important to leave wasp nest removal in Downingtown to the professionals. If done incorrectly, wasps will perceive the nearby people as threats and begin stinging in an attempt to protect their home. That is why we have wasp exterminators in Downingtown who have been thoroughly trained on how to keep everyone safe throughout the wasp nest removal process.
Hornets are a subset of wasps that are larger in size and live in large, highly organized colonies. Each species likes to create their nests in different places, so a proper inspection by one of our wasp exterminators in Downingtown is necessary for proper removal. The most common nesting sites include:
Like wasps, hornets will attack threats to their colony, which is why hornet nest removal in Downingtown should never be attempted on your own. Unlike wasps, hornet nests can house thousands of workers, creating an impressive swarm when they have to be protective. The professional hornet exterminators in Downingtown at Masters Touch Pest Solutions have the gear and products needed for safe hornet removal, which is why you should leave the hard work to them instead of attempting it yourself.
Yellow jackets earned their name as their bodies are brightly colored and primarily yellow. They are even more aggressive than wasps and hornets, meaning a yellow jacket exterminator in Downingtown is a necessity.
We do not recommend attempting yellow jacket removal in Downingtown on your own. Fortunately, here at Masters Touch Pest Solutions, our experts will not stop until your issue has been resolved. Like other stinging insects, their removal should be left to our professional yellow jacket exterminators in Downingtown. Trust us for all your yellow jacket removal needs!
