Pest Identification – Stinging Insects

What Are Stinging Insects?  

Stinging Insects In ArkansasThere are many species of stinging insects but the ones frequently encountered by McCauley Services are carpenter bees, baldfaced hornets and european paper wasps.  While hornets and wasps live in nests or colonies. carpenter bees actually inhabit abandoned nest tunnels and excavate wood galleries for the purpose of raising their young.

Why Do I Have Them?

There are many reasons why stinging insects invade, but most homes in our area experience problems with these types of pests starting in spring and continuing through the summer months.

Are They Dangerous?

Male carpenter bees are aggressive in nature, however they are not capable of stinging.  Females on the other hand are capable of stinging but do so rarely.  Stinging insects like hornets and wasps are considered a nuisance but do have stingers that can be very painful and may cause mild to severe allergic reactions which can be fatal.  

How Do I Get Rid Of Stinging Insects?
