Bees, Wasps & Hornets
Bees, wasps, and hornets are one of the most common pest infestations in Minnesota.
Since many people are severely allergic to the stings of these insects, it’s important to deal with them as quickly as possible. Most bees, wasps, and hornets have black and yellow stripes around their abdomen. Hornets and wasps are on average 3/4” to 1” long. Yellow jackets and paper wasps are both black in color with yellow markings. Hornets are mostly black in color, with a white pattern over their face.
Why are they in my home?
- Wasps and hornets like to create nests under the eaves of houses to be protected from wind and rain
- Queen bees seek protected areas like homes over the winter months
- Most bees will be outside of your home under wood piles, bark, logs and other objects that provide protection from the elements
- Ground wasps will typically be located just under the soil surface
Are Bees, Wasps, and Hornets a danger to my family?
Bees, Wasps, and Hornets will turn very aggressive if they feel threatened!
- Most bites hurt after the initial sting, then swell for a day or two
- To those that are very allergic, the sting if these insects can cause death if untreated
