Striped Flying Pests 101

There are many different types of flying pests that can invade your yard, including carpenter bees, hornets, paper wasps, and more. The most common found in the Kenilworth area are:

  • Honeybee: In a normal healthy hive there are anywhere from 30,000 to 70,000 bees. A queen can lay up to 1,500 eggs in a single day. Since your skin is thick, when a honeybee stings you, its stinger will come off in your skin. When you think of honeybees you might think of the boxy hives used by farmers. If the colony is wild, they are happy enough to build their nest in your attic or behind your exterior walls. You should never plug up the entrance to a bee colony, because they will chew their way into your home to get out.
  • Wasps: There are a lot of different species of wasp. Some are red; others are yellow and black, while still others can be white and black. Some varieties of wasp build massive nests on the eaves of your home. Some, like the bald faced hornet builds its basketball shaped nest hanging from a tree. Yellow jackets and bumble bees are happy to build their nests underground in abandoned rodent dens. Unlike honeybees, wasps can sting you multiple times. They won’t lose their stinger. When the temperature rises in the heat of the summer, wasps can become extremely aggressive and will attack with little provocation. Since they use pheromones, the entire colony will descend upon you.
  • Hornets: Hornets are aggressive creatures and will sting and bite you if they feel threatened. Many times hornets will build their nests in a cavity or wall of a hollow tree. There are often about 300 workers living in a hornet colony which accounts for how dangerous it is to approach a hornet nest. When dealing with a hornet problem, you should never plug the entrance of their nest or spray the entrance of your home with insecticide. This may cause them to chew through your wall and enter your living area.

Let’s Identify Your Pest Problem

Understanding the Seasons

Weather has a profound effect on pest life cycle. Most pests, rodents and insects breed aggressively during spring and go through periods of hibernation during autumn and winter.

When the weather slowly begins to heat up, pests start to get more active after having stayed dormant over the colder winter months.

  • Birds often start to find mates and start building their nests.
  • Moths which consumer leaves usually become active again.
  • Flies often emerge from their winter hibernation places and start to breed and spread out.
  • Squirrels also spend the winter in hibernation. When spring approaches these creatures start looking for a new home. This is usually the time when they make their way into lofts and other spaces.

Summer is arguably the best season for pests. It is the time when they are in full swing and breed as rapidly as they can. Wasps are one of the most common summer pests followed by flies and rodents. Many a summer picnics and BBQs have been ruined by the ‘home invasion’ of these pests.

  • Wasps build their nesting grounds and lay their eggs during this time. Although the creatures are not directly harmful, they can be very aggressive and territorial at this time of the year, because they’re at their strongest.
  • The number of fleas also multiplies. Since pets spend more time outdoors during summer, they are more likely to bring the pests back indoors with them.
  • Bees are also more active during summer as they go out to gather nectar. Many times, homeowners find a new beehive in their garden and require pest control to take care of it. Because of their sting, bees are more dangerous than some of the other pests and you should call our professional service to get rid of them.
  • Moths and flies usually start to multiply significantly during summer.
  • Ants begin to swarm to find new mates and start new colonies during summer.
  • Cockroaches become very noticeable in the summer, especially in the kitchen and toilets. This is due to the hotter temperatures and stronger smells.
  • Bedbugs are also very active in the summer.

Autumn is the month when things start to get cooler. The number of pests starts to dwindle as they begin to slow down their breeding activities.

  • Wasps start becoming dozy and docile. You may find them buzzing around occasionally as if they are drunk. This is usually the end-time for their life.
  • Spiders in particular are more active at this time of the year.
  • Squirrels will gather their food and start to look for shelter.
  • The second breeding phase for flies begins. These pests remain active during the season.
  • Rodents also become more active. Due to the approaching cold, rodents usually find shelter inside homes in the loft or inside walls.

The coldest months are when pests seek out warmth and shelter. You will find a number of insects especially rodents and lizards make their way inside your home.

  • Spiders come into our homes to escape the web-destroying frosts.
  • Rodents move indoors to escape the cold, increasing infestations.
  • In many cases, homeowners find squirrels nesting in lofts when they go to get their Christmas decorations.
