"We are approaching the most active time of year for stinged insects. They scour for food that will sustain them for the wholewinter." - Earl Smith
Asheboro, NC (PRWEB) August 23, 2013
Summer is winding down, but before it comes to an end, Otho’s Pest Management warns people to keep aware of stinging insects. As the summer nears its conclusion, the weather stays hot and insects, including bees, run rampant. This is because they seek food, water and cooler temperatures often found indoors. Otho’s offers some advice to keep in mind when coming in contact with stinging insects.
Insects that sting include bees, wasps, hornets, fire ants and scorpions. Stings account for more than half a million people to the emergency room every year. Five percent of the population has insect sting allergies and approximately 40 people die per year from insect stings in the United States. Stings are rare, but it’s important to know some of the best practices in case of a sting.
Though bees and yellow jackets are known for being stinging insects, they rarely sting unless they are provoked. The best way to handle being stung by a bee, should it happen, is to remove the stinger immediately and then clean the sting site with soap and cold water. Applying ice also helps to lessen the swelling or inflammation from a sting.
Hives or nests will often appear on a homeowner’s property during the summer. Those who find a hive should not try to remove it themselves, they should contact a pest control company like Otho’s Pest Management to safely remove the threat.
Insects will remain active through the end of the summer as they stock up on food to last them through the winter. Those who have an insect problem and need to contact an exterminator should call Otho’s Pest Management at 336-672-1983.
