Bees, wasps & hornets control  – Exterminators – Removal

Bees, wasps, and hornets are a crucial part of our ecosystem and, when not in residential areas, are typically harmless. Certain species are capable of stinging and are more aggressive, which can be dangerous for people—especially those who are allergic. Especially when nests are built near your home or business, it’s important to call the professional wasp exterminators at Johnson Pest Control for safe bee, wasp, and hornet removal.

How dangerous are wasps and hornets?

Just as with any type of pest, hornets and wasps can become aggressive when they feel threatened. Yellow jackets are known to sting without provocation, especially in the late summer and fall. While some stinging insects will only sting once, others are known to sting repeatedly. Approaching a nest of any kind of stinging insect is never recommended, even if it appears old or empty.
