Honey bees and bumblebees sting and inject venom only once and usually die within minutes after delivering their sting.


Warm weather tends to bring everyone outside, including stinging pests. While the stings from wasps, bees, hornets, or yellow jackets may hurt, they can also cause more serious health issues like painful swelling, infections, nausea, and in rare cases even death. Not only do you need to worry about the stinging pests themselves, but also about locating and removing their breeding places.

In the warm months, stinging insects buzz around your home, often building nests inside attics and gutters, or under decks or eaves. It is important to find and seal cracks and crevices to keep these pests from migrating indoors.
