6 Risks of Wasps & Bees

While the warm weather brings a lot of happy times, one thing you need to be on the watch for is stinging insects. Wasps and bees play an important role in nature but their stings can be painful and in rare instances, life threatening. Here are six risks wasps and bees pose to people.

Painful Stings

One major reason to watch out for poise bees and wasps is out of fear of a painful sting. Bee stings feel like a pinch followed by painful burning. For most, a sting is just an unpleasant inconvenience, but if you are allergic, it has some more serious implications. Because the venoms differ between wasps and bees, it is possible for one to be allergic to one and not the other.

But regardless of which allergy you have, you can experience serious side effects without proper medical treatment. After a sting, your heart can start to race and you can lose consciousness. In the most severe cases, anaphylaxis can occur.

If you are allergic to bees or wasps, you may want to speak to your doctor about obtaining an epinephrine autoinjector, especially if you’re going to be outdoors for an extended period of time. Bees and wasps can be incredibly dangerous, so it’s important to contact a professional at Western Exterminator to get rid of your pests before they become a big problem.


Bees and wasps not only leave some of us running in fear for our lives, but they can also torture us with pollen. When a bee pollinates the flowers, it can cause terrible allergies to occur—resulting in sneezing and itchy, watery eyes.

Destruction of Property

Carpenter bees can ruin your home if they are able to get inside and start hollowing out the wood beams. Hire professional bee removal in Tucson to prevent the bees from doing additional damage to your home. Bees will come back to areas that they have visited in the past and will continue to destroy the wood if you don’t repair the damaged pieces.

Though wood wasps, or horntail wasps, will not infest wood in homes, they can be brought in through finished timber. Female wood wasps drill holes into trees and then lay their eggs inside. The larvae later leave holes in the wood as they develop and exit.

Wasp and Bee Noise

Bees can burrow into small areas and build nests or burrow in the wood. You may lay down to sleep and end up hearing your wall buzzing all night long.

Bees and wasps are extremely noisy when they get in a group, so let the pest specialists at Western Exterminator give you some peace of mind. Our wasp and bee removal experts in Tuscon will remove them from your home before the noise drives you crazy!

Bees Keep Coming

Just because you get rid of bees that have been disturbing your picnic doesn’t mean your fight is over. Bees will keep coming, as they are attracted to the smell and colors at your picnic. You need to hire professionals to use the correct treatments to keep bees away from your property.
