5 Tips For Bee, Wasp & Yellow Jacket Control In Palm Harbor

Bee, Wasp and Yellow Jacket Removal!

Palm Harbor bee and wasp control is something we at Creepy Creatures are involved in on a daily basis.

One of the best things about Palm Harbor, Florida is the diverse biology including wildlife, plants and my favorite, bugs!

While we have bees, wasps and yellow jackets and hornets all year around, Fall is when the yellow jackets really become active.

In general, wasps tend to make nests under eaves of homes. Most nests are under the size of a fist. Wasps (generally called “polisties”) are capable of stinging, however they do their best to not sting.

FACT:  More people die in the United States each year from stinging insects than from snake bites! (And that doesn’t include the thousands of people who end up in the emergency room but survive)

There are 5 things YOU, the homeowner can do to keep wasps, hornets, yellow jackets and other stinging insects from becoming a threat to your and your family.

  1. Keep landscape well trimmed and maintained.
  2. Be observant of any bee or wasp activity.
  3. Avoid any known stinging insect nests.
  4. Use caution when walking or working in areas with heavy ground cover.
  5. If you do encounter and nest, contact your pest management professional for advice.

Honey bees can nest just about anywhere. You can find them underground in water meter boxes, inside walls of homes and you can even find honey bees 50′ high up inside hollow trees. We have both European honey bees and the more aggressive Africanized honey bees. On some occasions the two bees can mate and create hybrid Africanized honey bees and yes, they live in Palm Harbor.

Even though we have an abundance of honey bees in Central Florida, many people are concerned about a declining bee population, however new studies show that the population has rebounded and that many of these studies did not include honey bees.
