Pest Control MN | Wasps & Bees

It is time to start thinking about those pests who always seem to show their faces as spring arrives and stay all summer.  They are creepy and crawly and they are would love nothing more than to get INTO your home!  We’re talking about wasps and bees!

Bees, like ants, termites, and some wasps, are social insects. They are called social because they form communities and all work together towards the maintenance of the nest.

When temperatures rise, pests perk up. Insects are temperature-dependent. When weather gets cold, their metabolism slows and when the weather warms, their metabolism increases in activity so we see more activity in the warm months.

As the weather continues to get warmer, you can expect an increase in the number of pests you see as they seek food, water, and shelter. If you are not prepared when these tiny terrors come a’knockin, don’t be surprised if a few uninvited guests try to crash your first spring barbecue!

I thought this was worth a share.

So this guy decided to use his BBQ this weekend… so he thought he’d clean it up. He had known there were bee’s coming from under the cover so he thought he’d kill them, obviously…

Know where to look for these bees and wasps and implement preventative measures for when you go outdoors.  While they’re still in a state of suspended animation, take a look around for hives or nests where the little critters are hibernating. Seek out the underside of your porch, eaves, overhangs, low-hanging branches on trees and decks.  And yes, as you can see, BBQ’s that have been stored for the winter!

Don’t let these pests ruin your summertime fun!

Now is a great time of year to “nip it in the bud by preventing them from getting in as best you can!”  Seal as many cracks and holes on the outside of your home as possible, especially on the south and west walls where the sun heats the home during the late summer and fall. Also, you should install tight-fitting screens on all foundation and attic vents.

Wasp and Bee Management

Some types of wasp or bee problems are easy to control. For more challenging cases, consider hiring an experienced pest control expert. Nests are best dealt with during late evening when wasps and bees are less active and foraging workers have returned to the nest. Wasps and bees generally will not attack as long as they are not physically threatened. However, use caution as wasps and bees will protect their nest. The last thing you want to encounter is a bee with a BAD ATTITUDE! He just might decide to stick it to ya!

A Minnesota Pest Control Expert is an excellent option for getting rid of the pests. They can also repair any damage they may have caused in a way that will prevent them from coming back!

By the way… I Would SO Buy A New BBQ!

Just FYI: Yellow Jacket Mafia:

A dying Yellow jacket releases an alarm chemical that alerts all the other Yellow jackets near the nest to its tragic fate. In less than 15 seconds, Yellow jackets within a 15-foot radius will rally to attack the predator.
