If you’re like many people, the buzz of a flying insect, especially is it stings, 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. For health and safety reasons, stinging insects should always be removed by professional pest control exterminators. 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 stinging insect removal to get rid of potentially dangerous bees, wasps, and yellow jackets.
