Two Types of Wasps.

You should know about the two types of wasps that may invade your Chicagoland home.  There is a social wasp and a solitary wasp.  The social wasps are hornets, yellow jackets, etc.  They usually have a larger population than those that we know as solitary wasps.  To spot a stinging wasp try to notice them at rest.  If they fold their wings length wise you have a stinger in your midst.

If you are trying to differentiate between a wasp and a bee know that wasps feed on other insects.  Bees, of course are living mostly on pollen or nectar.  Here is another tip…wasps tend to have bodies that are smooth while bees are generally quite hairy.  A hornet should be colored white and black while a wasp is bright yellow with patterns of black.

They may be pretty creatures when viewed from a distance or on TV, but no one wants them to terrorize their family.  Find out exactly what is invading your property and take action.  You can rely on Kurt Spurgeon.  He owns A Complete Pest Solution a Chicago area bee and wasp control exterminator.  Call Kurt today and find out what the buzz is all about at (630) 464-1542.

Protecting Yourself from Bees.

Here is the conundrum…bees are an important part of our agricultural system, but can also be dangerous pests.  Thousands of people in Chicagoland are allergic to bee stings.  You not only have to be careful from a health standpoint, but it just plain hurts a lot to be stung by your average bee.  So it is important to make the right decision in eradicating bees from your home or business.

Bee removal is a delicate process that requires a professional touch.  Most of us can’t tell a carpenter bee from a bumble bee, but getting rid of them requires a different approach.  Bumble bees are ruled by the Queen (Just like in your household!)  Carpenter bees do not have the same social system and are not as vital ecologically as their cousins the bumble bees.

Knowing how to eliminate either from your environment is NOT your job.  You don’t just go out and buy a can of spray and call it a day.  You call the bee and wasp control experts of Chicagoland - A Complete Pest Solution.  Let Kurt get stung, not you and your kids!  Call A Complete Pest Solution today to control that bee problem at (630) 464-1542.
