Hony bees are generally not a problem. They really just want to go about their business of gathering up pollen and making honey. There are a few times when they are aggressive, generally when someone is attacking their hive or when they are swarming because of a flight of a new queen. Wasps, on the other hand, are the big jerks of the insect world. They tend to be much more aggressive, can sting you more than once, and may chase you after you leave their hive vicinity. If you are worried about having wasps, there are things that you can do to get rid of them and to prevent them from even showing up.
Get Rid of Stumps and Dead Trees
Wasps are opportunistic insects when it comes to housing. They will move into any possible place they can to create their hives. While some wasps will build nests that hang from trees or buildings, others will take advantage of dead trees and stumps since they generally have holes that are ready made for wasps to nest in. The holes that they can find in tree stumps or in dead trees will make sure that they have somewhere safe, dry, and protected from the weather. Making sure that you get rid of those things as soon as possible will help to get rid of habitat that wasps could use.
Plug Up Holes
You also want to make sure that there aren't any holes in your siding or eaves. Wasps don't need to have a very big space to enter and exit their nests, and they can spread their nests out in narrow areas, like in between exterior and interior walls. So, what you need to do is to periodically check out your siding, eaves, chimneys, etc. to see if you there are any holes that you may need to patch. Another way to see if you have places where wasps are getting into your walls is to spend some time just watching the wall. Yes, it may be boring, but you will be able to see wasps flying in and out of the their nest's entrance.
If you have wasps, you want to make sure that they are gone as soon as possible. The best way to do that is to call a pest control company and let them come kill the wasp and destory the nest so that you don't have to worry about those big jerks anymore.

After marrying my sweet husband ten years ago, I moved into a fixer-upper. I immediately started making a list of remodeling projects I wold need to complete before the house would be comfortable to live in. For instance, I had to rip out the old linoleum flooring in the kitchen, mud room, and bathrooms. I also had to buy a complete set of new furniture. Only a few days after moving into this house, I also discovered my need to contact a reputable pest control specialist. The house contained huge, disgusting roaches. After a local pest control technician visiting my house, my home was free of potentially health damaging roaches. On this blog, you will discover the latest trends in the pest control industry for successfully removing roaches from a home.
