Bees and Wasps
We all know that bumble bees are beneficial to our flower and vegetable gardens and crops and that pesticides can be harmful to these beneficial beauties. But bumble bees can also be dangerous. Unlike other stinging insects, the bumble bee can deliver more than one sting to it’s victim, and homeowners should not attempt to extract or remove a bumble bee nest on their own. All bees and wasps can be dangerous to children, pets and people who are allergic to the stings that they deliver when threatened.
Wasp and hornet nests, yellow jackets and Africanized honey bees can be a big problem for Land O Lakes home and business owners. Bay Area Lawn and Pest Control services will thoroughly inspect your home or business for dangerous wasps, hornets, yellow jackets and extinguish the nests.

As with any bee, they will nest in some unusual places but these bees are more likely to nest in tires, outdoor grills and fire pits or even empty abandoned vehicles.
