We have several varieties of stinging insects in North Jersey: bees, wasps, hornets, and yellow jackets. Most species when left alone are harmless. Unfortunately, the bees sometimes make their nest close to our living areas. When this happens it creates a situation where it is dangerous. We at PermaKill believe that there are times to hire a professional, and this is one of those times! An improper treatment may cause serious injury to the applicator and others nearby.
Common Types of Stinging Insects in North Jersey
Yellow Jacket Control
Yellow jackets are one of the most dangerous stinging pest in North Jersey. An average mature yellow jacket colony will contain about 500 or more members. Yellow jacket colonies usually don’t get noticed until the “4th” of July when the colony grows very rapidly. Most times nests are not noticed until someone gets stung. With an active colony, a steady stream of yellow jackets will be constantly entering and exiting the nest.
Male wasps cannot sting, but females have a needle-like egg-layer which also serves as a defensive venomous stinger. Wasps often build nests under soffits, behind siding and shutters–places that offer shelter from the rain. Because they are attracted to moisture and sweet odors, wasps will hover around sweat, perfume, food, flowers, dead insects and other things found in the home.
Carpenter Bee Control
Carpenter Bees are usually one of the first bees seen in the spring. They chew tunnels in wood to lay their eggs. Carpenter bees will leave brown stains on the sides of houses and produce sawdust. They usually are found on the sunny side of the house by an early flowering plant. While these bees do not sting, they can be very aggressive.
