A bee, wasp, or hornet hive can be very disruptive to any Cincinnati property. Some of these insects tend to be aggressive and can give humans painful stings. Honey bees are considered endangered in certain areas, so if you identify honey bees on your property, you will need to ensure they are safely relocated by a professional.
Wasps and hornets tend to be more threatening and destructive than a honey bee hive. They will have slimmer bodies than honey bees with a pair of wings and a pinched waist. You can often find these pests in the summer hovering around your drink or food when you’re outside. A hornet or wasp infestation does not pollinate like honey bees do, but instead look for food from other sources, like fallen fruit or discarded trash.
Bee, Hornet, and Wasp Infestation Risks
These insects are infamous for stinging, which can be quite painful and even deadly to someone who is allergic to their stings. A hive on your property from any of these insects will make any outdoor activities risky if you cross paths with them or come near their hive. Most of the time wasps and hornets will not go out of their way to sting, but are very protective of their hive and will attack if feeling threatened. Wasp and hornet removal is best handled by a professional exterminator.
Preventing Bees, Wasps and Hornets in Cincinnati
These insects will be attracted to outdoor areas like patios, porches, and garages where food or trash is stored. Sometimes they will be attracted to the plant life in your yard, especially if you have any fruit-bearing plants. Wasps and hornets are known to make their hives near garbage bins where they have secure access to a food supply. Outdoor areas in Cincinnati where food might be consumed, like patios or porches, will also attract these insects with crumbs or spilled sugary drinks. Make sure to keep your drinks covered and these areas clean to help prevent a hornet or wasp infestation.
