Stinging Insects

Bumblebees 

Bumblebees, while sometimes troublesome, are primarily a beneficial insect (pollinator).  For this reason, we do not always suggest chemical treatment unless the homeowner has severe allergy concerns or the insects are in an area where human activity causes conflict with these pests, such as a child’s play structure.

Yellow Jackets/Wasps

Yellow jackets and wasps are often aggressive and troublesome as they seek harboured spaces under decks, steps and sheds, often within close proximity to dwellings.

An inspection is not usual required and treatment can be done immediately – preferably during the morning or evening hours, when there are more wasps present in the nest.
