Stinging Insect Control In Wilmington, DE

Serving Delaware, Maryland, & Pennsylvania

Why Wilmington Should Consider Stinging Insect Control

Stinging insects are common invaders, and if you own property in the Wilmington, DE area, it's important to understand the potential dangers of these pests. Stinging insects like bees, wasps, and hornets can cause severe allergic reactions in those that they sting. Everyone will react differently to stinging insects depending on their sensitivity and allergies, but sometimes the reactions are so serious that they can lead to anaphylactic shock.

Even if you don't have allergies, there are still reasons to be concerned. Not only is getting stung a painful experience, but it's also a sudden occurrence that can lead to distraction. Distraction puts you at risk of serious accidents and injuries. Something else to think about is the site of the sting. The area can develop into an infected wound if not treated properly. Whatever way you spin it, the dangers of stinging insects near your home are very real.

Common Types of Stinging Insects That Can Terrorize Your Home

Bumble Bees

Bumble bees usually create their nests underground and very rarely present any problems. Bumble bees do not have stingers, but they could bite if disturbed. Sometimes bumble bees will set up their nest somewhere close to a home or business, where they may present a problem.

Carpenter Bees

Carpenter Bees are a larger bee species that you can usually see flying around on their own rather than in large colonies. Male carpenter bees do not have stingers but will sometimes fly around aggressively to try and intimidate potential threats. These bees can cause damage to homes and wooden structures as they bore into wood to lay eggs and leave large holes.

Honey Bees

Honey bees are the most common bee that we encounter in daily life. Honey bees are yellow and black and have smaller bodies than hornets and wasps. They are not usually aggressive but do have stingers and will attack you if they feel you are a potential threat.


Wasps are a very diverse species, with over a hundred thousand documented varieties in existence. In North America, the most common wasps are hornets and yellow jackets, both of which can be very aggressive and will not hesitate to deliver a painful sting.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) About Stinging Insect Control

Bees, wasps, and hornets are very protective of their hives and will attack any potential threats to their homes. Living close to an active stinging insect hive can be very dangerous for those who have allergies to bee stings or young children who are more prone to experiencing a negative reaction to a sting.
