Bees and wasps are a common problem for homeowners. Bees and wasps typically do not sting unless they are disturbed or feel threatened. A sting to someone who is allergic to these pests can have fatal consequences. Hughes Pest Control can help remove a beehive or wasp nest in Reston, Herndon, Chantilly, McLean, and Oakton.
Bees look for pollen but are also attracted to sugary foods such as ice cream or juice. To prevent bees, make sure you clean any debris left from these items and take the trash out often.
Wasps are dark brown with yellow markings and are often confused with yellow jackets because of their similar markings. Wasps build their nests under the eaves of the house, in attics, and behind light fixtures.
If you have a bee or wasp infestation, you need professional help for extermination. Handling a beehive or wasp nest can be dangerous as the potential to be stung is high. Proper protective equipment must be worn.
