Did You Know?
Fire ants are actually stinging insects just like wasps and hornets. Scorpions are a stinging pest; however, they are not insects. In fact, scorpions are members of the arachnid family, and are more closely related to spiders.
Get the Sting Out!
Eco-Safe will eradicate stinging pests without the sting of using harmful materials in the environment where you live, work and play.
Stinging pests are generally most active in the spring and summer months; however, they can pose a threat all year round. Wasps, bees, hornets, yellow jackets, fire ants, and scorpions each have powerful stings that can cause severe pain and serious medical problems.
Nests and hives of wasps, bees, and hornets may be found in trees, under roof eaves, on equipment such as ladders, in bushes, or even in the ground. It is always best to allow an Eco-Safe professional to locate and remove the nests of stinging pests. Not only are Eco-Safe professionals fully trained and licensed to handle stinging pests, we have the experience and expertise to safely and effectively stop these pests and remove their nests.
What’s worse than having stinging pests around your home or business?
Having stinging pests inside of your home or business. It is a fairly common occurrence. The only way to truly prevent this from happening is to allow Eco-Safe to inspect your property, determine active and possible entry points, and perform a full exclusion. Exclusions are not just for wildlife – they are also effective for other pests. We will quickly, safely, and effectively remove stinging insects and stop them from re-entering. Eco-Safe is equipped to remove hives, nests and even honey comb, if stinging insects happen to colonize inside of your home or business.
Hornets help control flies, bees, and other insects. Hornets typically do not sting humans unless provoked; however, when hornets nest near homes and businesses it can put people at risk for being stung. Hornets defend their nests aggressively with potent stings.
Yellow jackets often nest underground in rodent burrows. Each colony may contain 1000’s! They are not quick to sting (and they help control undesirable pests like flies) but they are extremely aggressive when it comes to defending their colonies. Their stings are extremely painful.
Scorpions are nocturnal and are mostly found hiding under rocks, wood, debris, or anything else lying on the ground. Some scorpion species even burrow into the ground. If you are concerned about a scorpion issue, Eco-Safe is only a call away and ready to help.
Eco-Safe is equipped to quickly remove wasps and their nests. Wasps also play a role, albeit minor compared to honey bees, in pollination. Paper wasp stings are extremely painful. Mud daubers on the other hand usually sting only spiders, and are extremely beneficial insects.
We understand the urgency of bees – both the dangers for people and honey bees. If relocation of honey bees is not possible or there is a medical risk, Eco-Safe will remove the source. Interested in relocation or want to confirm the species on your property? Visit our honey bee page.
