If you’re like many people, the buzz of a flying insect is enough to send you running inside to safety. While not all bees and wasps are aggressive, many will sting if they feel threatened, which can happen accidentally. Bumblebees, for example, are largely considered beneficial since they are pollinators, but will sting if provoked and should be removed by the professionals in insect control in Long Island. Carpenter bees can damage your home or outbuildings by boring into wood, and so present their own type of threat even if they don’t sting. Since these insects may look similar and are hard to distinguish, it’s always best to call in the experts in bee removal to get rid of potentially dangerous bees, wasps, and yellow jackets. Take a look at this infographic to learn more about common types of stinging insects. Please share with your friends and neighbors.
