Trusted Stinging Insect Control For Your West Chester Property

One of the best parts about the West Chester area summer is enjoying time outdoors. Unfortunately, stinging insects like wasps and bees can turn your pickup game, barbecue, or back porch lounge time into a nightmare very quickly. Get the facts on the dangers of the local stinging insects before putting yourself in harm's way trying to deal with the problem yourself.

WaspS, Hornets, & Bees

While wasps, hornets, and bees are a valuable part of the ecosystem, our only goal is to make sure that they help the environment where it won't put you and your family in harm's way. While stinging insects are similar in many ways, there are differences between them.

Paper wasps, yellow jackets, and mud daubers are common in our area. Paper wasp nests are typically gray with exposed cells and are found in sheltered areas like under eaves and behind shutters or light fixtures.

Yellow jackets will often nest either in the ground or within structural voids of a house. Ground nests can be found in the lawn, near walkways, and around concrete slabs or fence posts. Structural nests are sometimes found by hearing a crackling sound in the wall or seeing a wet spot on the drywall. In this case, use caution as they can break through into the living room if not treated.

Mud daubers are beneficial and typically do not sting.

Bald faced hornets are wasps that build the gray paper nests that hang in a bush or a tree. Though they are beneficial, when their nests are too close to the home, professional pest control is the best way to handle removal.

European hornets are the only true hornet found in Pennsylvania. They are large and will aggressively defend their nests. They can nest inside wall cavities, attics, hollow trees, and sometimes in the ground. It is best to have a professional pest control company handle these if you find them near your home.

Bumblebees, an important pollinator, can be aggressive when defending their nest, which can be found in compost heaps, insulation of houses, or birdhouses. If bumblebees nest too close to the home, treatment is usually needed.
