The Edmonton area's variety of outdoor venues draws visitors and residents to our golf courses, sports events, festivals and restaurants.

Building nests close to our Edmonton homes and commercial establishments, there's not much else that can put a bigger damper on outdoor events like the threat of being attacked by bees or wasps.
As soon as you discover a wasp nest on your Edmonton property, contact Tango Down Pest Control for professional removal.
Description And Behavior
Bees and wasps nest in trees, ground, on the outside of buildings or the inside walls of buildings. Wasps that are known as yellow jackets or hornets are medium-sized flying insects, 10 to 25 mm. long, with black and yellow striped bodies. It has a hollow stinger at the rear of its body that injects venom when it penetrates the skin. The sting can be quite painful. Social wasp species are the most common. In Edmonton, they scavenge through garbage cans and litter causing interference with human activities. They build paper nests of varying shapes and sizes, either visible or hidden. Unlike bees, wasps can sting more than once.
How Serious Are Bees And Wasps?
Several thousand people are stung by these venomous insects every year. Following a bee or wasp sting, an allergic reaction can cause swelling, itching, dizziness or shortness of breath. In some rare cases, severe allergic reaction to the venom can be fatal. Because wasps can swarm in the hundreds or even thousands and are capable of stinging multiple times, we highly recommend calling a professional pest control technician that has the proper training, products, and protective equipment to remove a nest from your property.
Tips For Prevention:
1. Make sure there are no holes or gaps around the outside of your house that could shelter wasps or bees. Seal up any holes, cracks or gaps that you can on the outside of the structure.
2. Keep garbage that is stored outdoors in tightly fitted containers. Ensure any food, fruits, or vegetables are put into a secure garbage container and taken out regularly.
3. Maintain any large backyard gardens on a regular basis. Cut down tall standing grass and weeds. These preventive measures can help in keeping bees and wasps from disturbing you and your family. If you are in a conflict with bees or wasps, we highly recommend contacting a professional exterminator as the extermination of bees and wasps can be very dangerous.
