Serving Ashland with eco-conscious bee, was, and hornet removal, relocation, extermination, and prevention.
Control Bees, Wasps, and Hornets While Protecting The Environment
When warm weather comes around it’s time for residents in Ashland, VA, and the surrounding areas to spend time outdoors.
Your family will be having people over for cookouts, the kids will be playing outside, and you will be doing more yard work.
What could ruin this incredible occasion? A wasps nest or hornet that stings your potentially allergic family members.
Bees, wasps, and hornets are important for our ecosystem. Bees pollinate flowers, wasps are a natural biocontrol for crops, and hornets regulate populations of flies, caterpillars, beetles, and wasps.
But, that doesn’t mean they don’t pose a threat when they nest on your property. Their stings can be extremely dangerous if someone in your family is allergic.
That’s why you shouldn’t handle the nest on your own. Contact Greenshield Home & Pest Solutions for safe, effective, and same-day stinging insect removal.
The Dangers Of Bees, Wasps, and Hornets On Your Property
- Stings can result in significant swelling, leading to airway obstruction and trouble breathing. You and your family are at risk of going to the nearest emergency room.
- Multiple stings or severely allergic reactions can cause coughing, nausea, dizziness, sweating, anxiety, hives, and death.
- Bees, wasps, and hornets can be very aggressive and attack when feel threatened. Which means children and animals playing in the yard can unexpectedly interrupt a nest.
- Killing individual bees or wasps won’t take care of the population. Some stinging insects build hard-to-reach nests inside walls, underground, or in attics.
- Some DIY techniques are incorrect and could aggravate the nest, leading to increased aggression.
- Some species of bees and other stinging insects are protected species, and it may be illegal to kill or remove them without the proper authorization.
- Wasps and Hornets can be very unpredictable and aggressive depending on the species. If you’re not sure what species is nesting around your home, don’t take your chances.

Bee, Wasp, and Hornet FAQs:
Many people try to remove their own bees, wasps, and hornets using raid or some other kind of stinging insect “killer,” found at the grocery store. Many of these products aren’t effective at killing wasps and can result in stings. It’s much safer to have an exterminator remove wasps and bees for you. Professional Pest Control technicians have the proper strategies and pesticides that have 25% more killing power than over-the-counter products. The best way to keep yourself out of the hospital is to call a pest control professional.
Yellow Jackets are considered the most aggressive stinging insect in Virginia. Yellow Jackets build nests in the ground that are easily disturbed. When they are disturbed the Yellow Jackets will chase and swarm the target, delivering multiple stings each. The most dangerous bee is the Africanized Honey Bee. These bees are especially aggressive and can chase their targets over a quarter mile.
You can use essential oils to keep many stinging insects away. Peppermint Oil is been shown to act as a natural repellent for wasps and bees. There are wasp traps you can buy that lure them in through sugar water or other attractive substances. However, nothing is better at preventing stinging insects than professional pest control.
Googling stinging pests will give you information on bees, wasps, yellow jackets, and hornets. But, Virginia also has fire ants that sting.
A Honey Bee can only sting you once and will die shortly after.
Honey Bees will leave stingers on your skin. Wasps, Hornets, and other species of bees will not.
The cost will depend on the size of the infestation, the strategy to remove it, and how comprehensive the preventative plan is. Contact Greenshield Home & Pest Solutions and we can provide a free same-day pest inspection.
