Keeping You Safe from Harm
Bee and wasp stings are not only painful, they can also be deadly. While bees and wasps don't actively search for people to sting, they will often attack if they feel threatened. Due to the dangers that bees and wasps present, it is highly recommended that you seek the professional services of Halt Pest Control. Our Portland bee and wasp exterminators are qualified to get the job done efficiently and safely.
Common Bee and Wasp Species in NW Oregon & SW Washington
- Honeybees: The most prevalent species of bees, the honeybee is known for traveling far distances to defend their hive when feeling threatened. Honeybees are protected by law in Oregon and Washington so we're not typically able to remove them, but we're happy to help you identify them and can refer you to a honeybee expert if needed.
- Yellow jackets: Easily identified by their yellow and black exterior, yellow jackets are known for having an extremely painful stinger.
- Hornets: Hornets are known to attack individuals who disturb their hives and when another hornet is killed. Unlike honeybees, hornets do not lose their stinger after one sting.
