Types of Stinging Insects in Our Region
- Carpenter Bee – These bees range in size from around ½ to 1 inch long and have a black abdomen and actually chew through wood to create a chamber to lay their eggs.
- Bald Faced Hornet – Worker hornets are usually around 5/8-3/4 inches, while queens can be ¾ of an inch or longer. Hornets are usually black with a white patterned face. Hornets typically build nests in trees, under eaves, chimneys or behind siding.
- Yellow Jacket – These stinging insects are black with yellow markings and prefer to build their nests underground, but may be found behind walls, in attics, trees or other landscaped areas. Yellow jackets can be very aggressive
- Paper Wasp – Paper wasps are usually around 1 inch in length, and look very similar to yellow jackets in terms of coloring. They typically build their nests in grills, behind attic vents, inside grills and other semi-enclosed areas.
How Do I Get Rid of My Bee, Wasp and Hornet Problem?
The key to getting rid of a bee, wasp, or hornet problem is to hire an exterminator. Andover MN residents can expect to see an uptick in stinging insects in spring and summer. If you call in a wasp and hornet extermination team they’ll do their best to get to the nest itself. Killing wasps and hornets one by one is not ideal, because of the large number of insects that can be in a nest.
