2020 has bought us new challenges. One of those includes America’s newest visitors: murder hornets. They sound like something out of a horror movie. You may even be tempted to exterminate every stinging insect you see just to be safe. However, killing all of the stinging insects can backfire for many reasons. At Raven Termite and Pest Control we don’t recommend DIY measures for bees, wasps or hornets. Therefore, when you suspect a nest and need pest control in Owings Mills, or elsewhere in the Baltimore area, don’t take matters into your own hands.

Saving the Bees

The main reason we should be careful which stinging insects you kill is to help honey bee preservation efforts. Sadly, bees have been disappearing and dying off at a very high rate all over the world. The average rate of bee colony death has been 29 percent each year since 2006. The percentage has fluctuated and doesn’t seem to be coming down.

Bees are a very important component of or ecosystem. At least one-third of our global food supply is pollinated by bees. These little insects make sure we all have enough to eat. The rapid decline in their population is alarming and we must help protect bees.

On the other hand, if dangerous stinging insects such as hornets and wasps invade, it is important to rid your property of them for obvious safety reasons. DIY removal of these nests is dangerous and sometimes even deadly. Thankfully, professional pest control experts are well equipped and experienced in these matters. The pest control technicians from Raven Termite and Pest Control can ensure your safety and the safety of others by very carefully identifying what type of pest it is and how to properly remove them.
