What Are Stinging Insects?
True to their name, stinging insects are a type of bug that has the ability to sting. They are equipped with stingers that can be used to ward off predators and defend against perceived threats. Types of stinging insects include paper wasps, blue bottle flies, mud daubers, European hornets, cicada killer wasps, hornets, carpenter bees, and yellow jacket wasps.

Signs of a Stinging Insect Infestation
- Hives: Many stinging insects live in hives, and these structures can be found in trees or under the eaves or along the walls of buildings. If you find a hive on your property, it’s likely that you’re dealing with an infestation.
- Buzzing: Constantly hearing a buzzing sound in your yard? The neighbor’s lawn mower may not be to blame. Most stinging insects generate some type of buzzing noise when they fly.
Visible in Your Home: The presence of stinging insects in your home could be a sign of an infestation or a nearby hive. The occasional carpenter bee may not signal a serious problem, but if you’re seeing wasps fly in and out at all hours, you may have an infestation on your hands.
Preventing a Stinging Insect Infestation
Like many other pests, stinging insects may stay away if their food sources are removed. Don’t leave any food out, and tightly seal all containers to ensure that critters don’t find their way inside. Be sure to rinse out any soft drink cans or bottles before throwing them in the recycling, as many stinging insects are attracted to the sugar content. In addition to controlling their food source, you can prevent stinging insect infestations in your home by properly sealing any cracks or gaps in your foundation, walls, windows, and doors.
Stinging Insect Control
If you’re dealing with a stinging insect infestation, call Franklin Pest Solutions as soon as possible to create a custom control regimen. In addition to professional assistance, you can keep a lid on the stinging insect population by maintaining your yard and your landscaping. Wasps can build nests in holes in the ground left by rodents, and overgrown flower bushes can attract surplus numbers of pollinators like bees.
