Phoenix Bee Removal: What a Homeowner Must Know About Paper Wasps

Paper wasps are named as such because of how their nests are constructed. Those familiar honey-comb like nests we often see attached on eaves and ceilings are actually made of plant material processed with the insects’ saliva to achieve a paper-like effect. Unlike other species, wasp nests have no outer shell so the cells in which they keep their food and young are pretty exposed. The queen usually builds her nest on the onset of spring.

Phoenix Bee Removal What a Homeowner Must Know About Paper Wasps

For people, paper wasps can be considered both a blessing and a curse from nature. These critters aid natural pollination by feeding on nectar and help control pest populations by hunting other insects such as caterpillars and feeding these to their larvae. As the larvae grow, they help expand the nest to accommodate future generations.

You don’t really have to destroy a nest if it’s built away from spaces that your family frequents. But if the dwelling is in your porch, deck, or anywhere your family members spend a lot of time in, you definitely have to get rid of the nest with the help of Phoenix, AZ bee removal specialists.

Just like other bee species, wasps can be very aggressive when it comes to defending their nests. And unlike a typical bee which only stings once, a paper wasp can sting multiple times. Plus, it may use alarm pheromones to call for back-up to help it protect the nest when threatened. Stings can be very painful and may trigger serious allergic reactions on some unfortunate victims.

Pain, redness, and swelling are the typical reactions to wasp stings. According to Allergy Clinic, these symptoms gradually develop in an hour and are usually gone in a day or two. However, effects on allergic people appear in matter of minutes and tend to be more severe, with reactions that include intense itching, swelling of the skin, sweating, headache, stomach cramps, vomiting, tight chest, and swelling of the throat. In extreme cases, a wasp sting can lead to anaphylactic shock and death.

Because of these, removing a paper wasp nest on your own can be very risky, especially, if you’re not certain whether anybody in your family is allergic to the sting. It would be best to leave the task to Phoenix bee removal experts such as Invader Pest Management. These companies understand the ecological importance of paper wasps so they’ll try to exhaust all measures to relocate their nest to less populated areas whenever possible. You can count on them to remove the nest without causing any damage to your property.
