How can I remove stinging insect pests from my property?
If you have a honey bee swarm in your yard call 311 to have a local beekeeper or technician come and safely remove them. Otherwise vigilance when policing your yard and addressing any potential pest problem is the easiest and least expensive safeguard. Brooming away small wasp nests from under the porch or burying a newly established Yellow Jacket hornet nest in the soil are good examples. There are several safe products on the market to eliminate wasps and hornets from around the home. Always read the directions and have an escape route planned ahead of any application. If a person has a history of allergic reactions to stinging insects, call an exterminator to avoid potential health risks.
