Bees, Hornets & Wasps

wasp, bee, hornet pest control

These flying pollinators and predators can be very beneficial but can also be deadly.

Bees, hornets and wasps are generally known as being major pollinators of flowering plants and extraordinary predators of nuisance insects. However, this benefit comes at a cost. Each year there is a reported 54 deaths attributed to arthropod bites or stings. Bees, hornets and wasps are considered to be either solitary or social depending on each individual species. Common solitary species include the carpenter bees, cicada killers, digger wasps, mud daubers, potter and mason wasps, spider wasps, and velvet ants. The more common social groups include the bumblebees, honeybees, hornets, paper wasps and yellow jackets. No matter the species, Century Pest Control can resolve your pest problem.


Bees, hornets and wasps are very beneficial to ecosystems everywhere as major pollinators of flowering plants as well as helping to reduce the numbers of other harmful insect pests. Control measures should only be taken if there is an immediate threat to the safety of people, pets or when peace-of-mind is required by an individual. When we arrive on-site, we will perform an overall evaluation of probable threat, treatment and safety concerns of the reactive bees, hornets and wasps during and after treatment. Depending on results, service may be postponed to a safer time or day. We can provide phone quotes but our treatment strategy may change after the onsite evaluation. Any changes to service and/or price is always explained first and never performed without approval first.
