Extermination of wasps and bees
From the outset, it is important not to confuse wasps with bees. Indeed, while wasps can be real scourges, bees are beneficial to nature. It will therefore be above all a question of getting rid of the first and staying away from the seconds if necessary.
Going back to these two insects, their stings are painful and can even be dangerous, even deadly, for allergy sufferers. It is therefore essential to take the necessary measures to keep them as far away as possible from your homes or to exterminate them if they have set up their nest in your home. We are going to talk about the solutions available to you for this.
How to deal with bees?
The bee has a hairy black body with yellow stripes and measures on average around 12 mm. It feeds mainly on honeydew, pollen and nectar, but also eats honey in winter. It generally lives in a group within a hive entirely made of wax and taking the shape of a regular hexagon composed of several cells.
Bees are not harmful insects
As a stinging insect, the bee could represent a danger for humans, especially for people with allergies. Its stinger contains a venom that can cause the following symptoms, in addition to pain:
- Skin rashes and itching;
- Vomiting and nausea;
- Choking or difficulty breathing;
- Increased heart rate;
- Loss of consciousness.
In the most serious cases, complications following a bee sting can lead to the death of the patient. Nevertheless, it is important to note that this one only stings to defend itself, when it really feels a danger, because in most cases, it dies after that. In addition, it is very useful to the environment thanks to its active participation in pollination. Thus, this insect is not strictly speaking a pest.
Preserving the life of bees
As they are useful, even essential, it is important to preserve the life of the bees. You just have to keep them away from the house by moving their nest to avoid any risk of bites, especially if you have children and pets or livestock. To do this, it is important to call in a professional.
First, he has the necessary equipment to protect himself from possible stings during his intervention. Also, he knows the techniques to apply to make the bees migrate safely and without them feeling in danger.
How to eradicate wasps?
From an anatomical point of view, the wasp is distinguished from the bee by its thin and slender waist as well as its long legs and its yellow color. Its larvae need protein, and are therefore carnivorous, while the adult feeds mainly on sweet liquid. However, it is important to note that the wasp does not produce honey, although it does eat it.
In addition, it generally lives in small groups or alone and builds its house (out of paper) in sheltered areas, in particular behind the shutters, at the corner of a wall, under the floor or between the ceiling and the roof.
Is the wasp really a pest?
As mentioned above, the wasp particularly appreciates sweet liquids, which is why it mainly attacks fruit in gardens and orchards. In addition, it is an aggressive species which, unlike the bee, can nevertheless sting several times. Its stinger also contains venom and can cause more or less serious complications such as itching, vomiting, headaches, loss of consciousness or cardiovascular shock.
In the worst case, the victim may even die, especially if he has suffered several bites. Thus, despite its usefulness in getting rid of insects such as aphids and caterpillars, the wasp is considered a pest.
How to get rid of wasps?
Exterminating wasps usually involves killing them. To do this, it is possible to use specific insecticides or to wrap the nest in a plastic bag and then place it in the freezer overnight. We note, however, that these processes are dangerous and the risks of arousing the anger of insects, and therefore of being bitten, are high. This is why we strongly recommend that you call on a professional who has the necessary protective equipment and is familiar with all the techniques to be applied for this type of intervention.
