ATLANTA, GA, January 21, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The Atlanta rodent control professionals at North Fulton Pest Solutions discuss the best methods for keeping hornets and bees away from your home. While residents in the South can enjoy mild temperatures during the winter season, one downside is that many garden pests also tend to stick around. In particular, stinging bugs can put quite the damper on outdoor activities.
Some species are more aggressive and territorial than others. To make matters even worse, hornets do not lose their stingers like honeybees, which means they can and will attack repeatedly if provoked. With that being said, knowing how to deter them from your home is a good idea.
Get Rid of Your Stinging Insect Problem
The Atlanta pest control experts note the importance of understanding the differences in stinging insect species' nesting habits. Before you can eliminate the threat, you have to know what you are up against. Carpenter bees make their homes inside wood; they will chew a hole and burrow inside, so examine your porch or deck thoroughly for any signs of destruction.
Hornets prefer to make large honeycomb nests that are typically suspended from tree branches and patio roofs.
According to Blake Edwards, Vice President of North Fulton Pest Solutions, "When dealing with hornets, make sure you get a professional to help destroy their nest during the evening hours when they are most docile. Using a flashlight covered with red film is ideal for performing a sneak attack, since they are unable to see this color."
The Atlanta pest control company also recommends keeping flowers to a minimum if you want to deter bees, in addition to not leaving any food outdoors, as these both attract them.
