HOW DOES ECOSHIELD GET RID OF STINGING INSECT NESTS?

Professional pest control services differ from any DIY treatments because we have access to different tools. For example, wearing bee gear allows our technicians to get very close to the nest without the risk of getting stung.

We also have access to industry-grade pesticides that will not only eliminate wasps and hornets, but can also prevent them from coming back. Knowing the biology and behavior of stinging insects is a significant benefit that our professionals have learned from our specialized training. By understanding how these insects behave and why it’s more involved than just physically taking down the nest. Each case is different, and nests are treated differently by pest, level of infestation, and the location.

How to Avoid Stinging Insects

We recommend the following additional precautions to avoid getting stung:

  • Avoid wearing sandals or walking barefoot in the grass. Honeybees and bumblebees forage on white clover, a weed that grows in lawns throughout the country.
  • Never swat at a flying insect. If need be, gently brush it aside or patiently wait for it to leave.
  • Do not drink from open beverage cans. Stinging insects can crawl inside a can attracted by the sweet beverage.
  • When eating outdoors, try to keep food covered at all times.
  • Garbage cans stored outside should be covered with tight-fitting lids.
  • Avoid sweet-smelling perfumes, hair sprays, colognes and deodorants.
  • Avoid wearing bright-colored clothing.
  • Yard work and gardening should be done with caution. Wearing shoes and socks and using work gloves will prevent stings on hands and feet and provide time to get away from an unexpected mound.
  • Keep window and door screens in good repair.
