GETTING STUNG IS NEVER FUN
Our Mission: To eliminate invasive stinging insects, or relocate if possible.
Our Target: Bees, Wasps, Hornets, and yellow jackets
Our Battlefield: Nearly anywhere. They can be in the ground, in trees or bushes, in parts of your home, or attached to your home.
Our Arsenal: High-pressured spray guns delivering the most effective product against the fight.
Caution: Stinging insects are not usually life threatening, unless you are allergic. If you get stung, swelling and pain is normal, but be extremely cautious and ready to call 9-1-1 if additional sudden reactions occur.
HORNETS & YELLOW JACKETS
- The Baldfaced hornet is technically a yellow jacket
- They tend to be the most aggressive of the stinging insects
- They have communal large nests and one queen
