Hornets & Wasps in Sacramento: What You Need to Know

Wasps and hornets in and around Sacramento homes and businesses can lead to several risks and concerns:

Painful Stings

Wasps and hornets are known for their potent stings, which can cause intense pain, swelling, and allergic reactions in some individuals. For people with severe allergies, a single sting can result in a life-threatening situation.

Aggressive Behavior

When threatened, wasps and hornets become highly defensive, increasing the risk of stings. Their territorial nature makes them particularly dangerous if their nests are disturbed or near high-traffic areas.

Property Damage

Wasps and hornets often build nests in or around buildings. These nests can lead to structural damage as the insects chew through wood, insulation, and electrical wiring. For Sacramento businesses, the presence of nests can deter potential customers and impact the aesthetics of a property.

Outdoor Activities

Infestations of wasps and hornets can hinder outdoor activities, such as gardening, picnics, or barbecues. Fear of stings may restrict the use of outdoor spaces, reducing the enjoyment of your property.

At Local Pest Solutions, we want you to enjoy your property and live without worrying about painful stings and property damage. That's why we customize our hornet and wasp treatments to give you an optimal outcome as quickly as possible.

What To Know About Wasps

The Three Types Of Wasps

  • Yellowjackets

  • Paper Wasps

  • Mud Daubers

Three types of wasps are common in the greater Sacramento area. Yellowjackets build their nests in enclosed areas, such as insect caves or wall holes, and defend them aggressively. Paper wasps build nests in protected areas, such as under eaves, branches, or pipes. They are not aggressive unless provoked. Mud daubers build their nests on walls and ceilings and rarely sting or defend their nests.

Wasps are not an issue unless they build their nests in your home or in places of high traffic in your yard. Getting too close to wasp nests can be dangerous because, unlike bees, an individual wasp can sting multiple times. We do not recommend removing a wasp nest on your own. A professional wasp removal service will wear protective clothing and bonnets to approach the nest safely.

Do You Need A Bee And Wasp Exterminator?

If a bee or wasp nest in your yard is away from high-traffic areas, they may not become a problem and it may be best to leave them alone. Most bees and wasps will not bother you unless you threaten their nest. However, suppose their nest is not easy to avoid. In that case, get professional nest removal services, especially if it is one of the more aggressive species. A bee and wasp exterminator will know how to remove the nest safely.

The Importance Of Safe Bee And Wasp Nest Removal

Attempting to remove a bee and wasp nest on your own is dangerous. Professional bee and wasp removal requires protective clothing and specialized techniques.

What To Know About Bees

Honeybees are beneficial insects that are crucial pollinators for crops in the Sacramento Valley. Our first recommendation would be to call a beekeeper to move the colony rather than eradicate it. In the spring, bees often ball up in trees while searching for a new nesting site and will move along shortly.

Bee stings are painful for most people but can cause life-threatening allergic reactions in others. Bees can swarm to protect their nest and be a nuisance in high-traffic areas. In addition, bees can damage your home if they nest in a wall. In these cases, we can treat bees as a last resort.

Sacramento Hornet, Wasp, And Bee Stings

Suppose a bee, wasp, or hornet stings you. In that case, you may experience immediate pain and notice a red, swollen area that could be itchy and around ½ inch in size. In some instances, the swelling could increase to a diameter of 2 inches or more over the next 2-3 days, which may look like an infection. However, it is uncommon for bee stings to result in infection.

Still, in some individuals, allergic reactions result in rash, itching, wheezing, difficulty breathing, and even shock. In a person allergic to insect stings, a single sting can trigger a life-threatening anaphylactic reaction where blood pressure drops and the airway closes, causing death.

Treatment for severe allergic reactions (anaphylactic reactions) involves epinephrine, intravenous fluids, and other drugs administered in a hospital. People allergic to stings must carry a preloaded prescription syringe of epinephrine and wear a medical alert bracelet. This treatment helps reverse anaphylactic reactions.

Individuals with severe allergic reactions to a bee sting may undergo allergen immunotherapy, also known as desensitization, for a few years to reduce the possibility of future allergic reactions.

FAQ About Bee, Wasp, Yellow Jacket, And Hornet Stings

How Many Bee Stings Can An Adult Tolerate?

Typically, people can take ten stings per pound of body weight. So, average adults can tolerate about 1,500 stings.

What Are Killer Bees?

A more aggressive type of honeybee, the Africanized honeybee (killer bee), has reached South America's southern and some southwestern states. When these bees attack their victim in groups, it can lead to a more intense reaction compared to other individual bee stings.

Do I Need To Remove Stingers?

If a bee stings you, it may leave its stinger on your skin. Removing the stinger as soon as possible is essential to reduce pain. Carefully scrape the sting with the edge of a credit card or a butter knife to remove the stinger.

Can I Reduce The Pain Of A Wasp Sting?

To reduce the pain, after a wasp sting, you can apply ice. You can also take nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and antihistamines orally. A cream or ointment containing an antihistamine, an anesthetic, a corticosteroid, or a combination can be helpful.
