Many species of wasps and bees exist across Nevada, and most are highly beneficial. However, when wasps and bees form hives in homes or public areas, they can become very dangerous. Nevada is also known to have the Africanized Honey Bee, which attacks people more readily, with higher numbers, and will chase a running target much farther than a traditional honey bee. When new swarms or hives occur, it’s critical to have a professional Pest Management Professional conduct an onsite assessment to determine the extent of the issue.
Wasps and hornets also pose a danger in Nevada. In the summer, wasps can be a constant irritant in backyards, balconies, or common areas. They produce a painful sting when threatened, and they can use their stingers more than once in a lifetime, unlike honeybees.
