When you think of bees, wasps and hornets, the first thing that comes to mind is a nasty sting. However, these insects are actually beneficial to our environment—they pollinate plants to keep the natural world green and growing and help maintain balance in the living ecosystem. In fact, many species of bees and wasps are even used as predatory insects in commercial farming to keep pest insect populations under control.



While environmentally beneficial, bees, wasps and hornets should nowhere be near your home and family. In large numbers, they can be destructive to structures and dangerous to humans, especially those who are particularly allergic to bee stings. Some wasp and hornet species may also be more aggressive when threatened and can sting repeatedly, so it’s very important to first identify what particular type of bee, wasp or hornet is present in your home. For this reason, it is best to use the services of professional bee and wasp control experts like Ant & Garden Pest Control in Beaverton Oregon.

Are Bees, Wasps and Hornets Dangerous?

Bees, wasps and hornets are not particularly aggressive, but some species can be more defensive than others when they think their nests and hives are in the slightest danger. When these hives and nests are found in high-traffic areas, bees and wasps can become a problem in your home. Some bee and wasps species also become more intrusive in the late summer months as they seek out food like sugar or fruits and can get closer to you and your family than you think. To prevent any threat from these stinging insects, it’s best to call on a pest control expert to help you out.

Bees, Wasps and Hornets in Oregon and Nearby Areas

Various species of bees, wasps and hornets thrive in the American Northwest so it’s easy to confuse one for the other. If you live in Oregon or Washington, you’ll most likely encounter yellow jackets, paper wasps, mud daubers, and bald faced hornets and it will take the expertise of a pest control specialist to identify a particular species that is thriving in your property. Take note that it is illegal to harm pollinators, so you need to make sure you are not destroying beneficial insects like honeybees and bumblebees.
