Frequently Asked Questions About Stinging Insects

What are stinging insects?

Many types of stinging insects exist. While some ground-dwelling creatures are also in this category, the classification of stinging insects generally includes hornets, wasps, and bees with a stinger at the end of their abdomen. Many stinging insects are aggressive and have yellow and black striped patterns, though some stinging insects may have solid colors of red, brown, black, or yellow. Gold Star Exterminators can help you with proper stinging insect identification.

Hosting stinging insects around your yard often results in serious problems as these pests multiply, create nests, and buzz around your property, putting you and those you care about at risk from stings.

Are stinging insects dangerous?

Insect bites and stings from stinging insects are dangerous due to the possibility of allergic reactions caused by these attacks. Stinging insects typically only sting things they perceive as threats, but accidentally passing too close to a stinging insect nest or swatting at one of these pests may result in one or more stings.

Stinging insect stings are painful and can potentially cause reactions such as anaphylaxis, which will need immediate medical attention. Professional removal of stinging insect nests is necessary to protect you from direct and dangerous exposure to these pests.

Why do I have a stinging insect problem?

Stinging insect problems start when these insects invade properties with plenty of food, moisture, and nesting areas in easy reach. Properties with lots of sweet-smelling flowers, piles of brush or debris, overgrown foliage, and food or drinks left outside will quickly attract stinging insects, especially in the late summer and fall when these pests are most active.

Where will I find stinging insects?

Stinging insects most commonly nest in trees, under porches and decks, in the eaves of buildings, or even along the side of buildings and in holes in the ground. If they invade interior spaces, stinging insects typically build their nests in attics and the open voids between walls.
