Some of the major things to look for with stinging insects:

Large numbers of bees or wasps! This may indicate an infestation.

Nests in upper corners of eaves or walls! Stinging insects can be very territorial!

Yellow Jackets hanging around your picnics: If you begin to consistently have yellow jackets visiting your backyard picnics be on the lookout for nearby nests. They are highly defensive of their nests and can sting repeatedly without consequence.

If you have stinging insects don't wait! Call a professional today!
