Additional frequently asked questions about fall pests

Honey bees are beneficial insects that pollinate flowers and plants. Bumble bees and honey bees normally don’t warrant any control. However, if their nest is in a sensitive location in or around your home, our experts know just who to call to assist you. Our experts can connect you with local professional beekeepers to remove the nest of bees without harming these beneficial pollinators.

Wasps are one of the few insects in Minnesota that are considered dangerous. Stings involve an injection of protein venom, which causes pain and slight swelling for most people. However, individuals who are sensitive to bee and wasp stings may develop reactions that include: hives, rashes, swelling away from the site of the sting, headache, minor difficulty with breathing, and upset stomach. For those with an allergy, a sting is a medical emergency. Wasps are aggressive if a nest is disturbed or food sources are scarce. An encounter with an angry wasp usually results in a sting or potentially multiple stings.

Bumble bees and honey bees do sting; however, they generally don’t sting unless provoked and generally do not warrant any kind of control. Bees are, in fact, beneficial to have around your yard! In the case that you, a family member, or a pet is stung, you can expect a little pain and a little swelling. Most stings occur from walking barefoot on lawns or handling flowers.

Getting rid of wasps and hornets as a do-it-yourself project is challenging, especially when dealing with large infestations or a colony of angry wasps. Our highly trained technicians use professional-grade products and safety attire when removing active wasp nests.

At Rainbow Pest Experts, we use an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) approach. We have found this is the best method to get rid of wasps and prevent them from making themselves at home in and around your home. An IPM approach requires the combined efforts of you and our professionals for the most successful long-term results. This approach includes:

  • Applying a high-quality professional-grade insecticide to kill any active wasp colony.
  • Working with you on steps you can take to deter wasps from visiting in and around your home as well as crashing any social gatherings you may be having in your yard.

No, wasps and hornets make paper nests which pose no issue once the colony is treated.

In Minneapolis, when freezing temperatures consistently set in, all workers will die except the reproductive females; they will try to over-winter and start their colonies next spring.
