Some of the worst insects to come into contact with are the ones who can inflict a painful sting. Pennsylvania is home to a handful of these insects and many of them dwell very close to humans. Whether it is a bee hive that is attached to your home or a fire ant nest on your lawn, these insects are dangerous to be around and can cause a significant amount of pain and even death in extreme circumstances. With summer around the corner, it is important to become familiar with these types of pests, because summer is the time of year that they become most active.
What are the Signs of a Severe Allergic Reaction to Stinging Insects?
While most people who experience a sting from a bee, wasp or hornet feel a great deal of pain, it is the victims who suffer from an allergic reaction that are at serious risk of a medical emergency. People who suffer from an allergic reaction to one of these stings can begin to have difficulties breathing, have their throat swell, become dizzy, lightheaded, fever and many other discomforting reactions. It is important to stay away from these types of insects to avoid any type of allergic reaction. Some people do not know they are allergic until they have been stung. Stewart Termite & Pest Control will keep these stinging pests away from your home and protect you and your family from their painful and dangerous stings.
Never Attempt to Remove a Bee Hive or Wasp Nest
One of the most common and most dangerous mistakes that home owners make when it comes to stinging insects is attempting to remove their nests from near or on their home. Bees will often build a hive directly onto a home, underneath an eve or under a porch. There have been times when a home owner has attempted to remove the hive on their own using a baseball bat, a fire extinguisher or even a water hose. Each of these situations resulted in the person being stung multiple times. Never attempt to remove a stinging insect’s nest, this is work that should only be done by a professional.
