Wasp & Hornets & Bees Control
Depending on where you live in NY, wasps can be a serious problem. Their stings are painful but that is nothing compared to the serious side effects that may be brought on by an attack such as an uncontrollable allergic reaction.
These little pests rarely interact with humans unless they feel that their nest is under attack. When they feel that their territory is being harassed they can become highly aggressive and will strike at your home and your family.
Let the professional team at All Bugs come in and inspect your wasp problem. We promise to rid your house of these potentially dangerous insects and to make your home safe again.

What to do if a wasp stings you:
When a wasp attacks and stings its victim it injects protein venom that is painful and can cause serious allergic reactions such as hives, wide spread swelling, faintness, dizzy spells, and trouble breathing. These suggestions will help ease a normal sting and reduce the effects.
- Apply extremely cold water or ice to the injection site
- Lie down and relax
- Drink plenty of fluids but do not ingest alcoholic beverages
- Lower the area of the body that was introduced to the venom
- If the symptoms persist and/or reach extremes seek medical attention immediately.

Seen in spring hovering around the eaves of a house or the underside of a deck or porch rail. They are most often mistaken for bumble bees, but differ in that they have a black shiny tail section.The carpenter bee is so-called because of its habit of excavating tunnels in wood with its strong jaws. The round half-inch diameter entrance holes are usually found on the underside of a board. A tell-tale trace of coarse sawdust is often found on the surface beneath the hole. Wooden decks, overhangs and other exposed wood on houses are prime targets. Painted and treated woods are less preferred, but they are by no means immune to attack.
Unpainted or stained cedar, cypress and redwood shingles and siding are also attacked despite their pest-resistant reputations. Carpenter bees, like their distant relatives, the carpenter ants, differ from termites in that they do not consume the wood as food. They simply excavate tunnels for nesting sites.
