What to Do if You Find a Bee, Wasp or Hornet Nest

Summer means BBQs, swimming, gardening, and stinging insects! Bees, wasps and hornets are very active during the summer months and it’s quite common to find a nest around your home or business. So what should you do if you find one? We have a few suggestions:

  1. Refrain from sudden movements and running away (unless you need to) so that you don’t aggravate any insects hanging around the outside of the nest.
  2. Close nearby windows and doors so they don’t find their way inside.
  3. Alert household members or business employees that there is a nest and to avoid it.
  4. Keep children and pets away from the nest.
  5. Don’t try to physically damage the nest until you’re sure there are no living insects left inside of it or around it.
  6. Give us a call. We will come out in a timely manner and will safely eliminate the nest. We’ll also survey the location of the nest for any opportunities to address vulnerabilities.
