Hornets, scorpions, wasps, yellow jackets, and bees especially, are all important to the environment and food supply as pest control and pollinators. However, equipped with stingers that could trigger severe allergic reactions, these stinging insects are not always safe to have around homes or businesses. An infestation begins when the insect discovers a territory filled with a plentiful food source of insects and flora, making its home with friends and spawn.
For colony insects like bees, hornets, yellow jackets, and wasps, a queen determines a good area and starts a nest, or hive. Before long, a veritable army of bugs is buzzing around, ready to defend their home at the cost of yours with painful stings. Arachnids like scorpions however, are invaders, slipping into your house through the same entries as you, hiding out in shady corners and feasting on the insects there. Armed with a painful venom of varying potency, these creepy-crawlies are not a pleasant sight to see skittering across your floors or climbing into your light fixtures. Though these stinging pests may do some good bettering your plants or eating other pests, more often than not they become a painful problem that must be removed.
