Utah Stinging Insect Control
The presence of stinging insects in and around your home is both alarming and unsettling, especially when you have young children in your home or someone who’s allergic to these insects.
At the first signs of a stinging insect infestation, the best course of action is to call in a professional exterminator—insects like bees, wasps, and yellow jackets are not something to mess with unless you’re properly trained and equipped to safely deal with them.

Get Help from the Professionals
A single sting from any of these flying insects can cause pain and swelling at the sight of the sting, resulting in discomfort, and in the worst cases, a serious, potentially deadly, allergic reaction. It is vital that at the first signs of an infestation of any of these bugs, you contact a professional for help. At Preventive Pest Control, we can safely manage the infestation or presence of any of these insects, and ensure they’re exterminated from your home and property, restoring a safe environment for your family and pets.
Signs of an Infestation
Stinging insects typically build their nests out in the open, so they’re fairly easy to identify when giving your property a onceover. Some places to keep an eye on for the presence of these nests and hives include:
- Woodpiles, mounds, and any other debris in your yard.
- Under eaves, inside the attic, and along the walls of your home or building.
- Inside of shrubs, trees, and other large vegetation outside of your home.
- Poles, tires, sheds, and any location they can easily access and remain undisturbed.
Methods of Treatment
While treatment of wasps, hornets, and fire ants consists of total extermination, the treatment of honey bees is much different. Since honey bees are valuable pollinators, much care will be taken in removing them and their hive from your home or property, and relocating them to a safer and more suitable environment.
