Bees and wasps are insects that can be controlled by a good Tulsa pest control company. Bees and wasps are important pollinators in our ecosystem. They make sure that our plant and tree life continue their cycle of survival. But in some cases they find themselves in places that are not convenient nor safe for us, and our loved ones. In cases like these, they can become pests that can be very dangerous to many different people, especially if they are allergic to things such as bees and wasps. So in this article, let us take a good hard look at bees and wasps, their life cycle, and what you and your Broken Arrow exterminator can do to help eliminate them.
BEE AND WASP POLLINATORS AND TULSA PEST CONTROL
We live in a very delicate ecosystem. Each part helps to maintain another part of that delicate ecosystem. Plants and trees are a very important part of our ecosystem. These structures take in the carbon dioxide that we expel and exchange it for the oxygen, putting it back out into the atmosphere for us to breathe. This gives us a cycle by which we can survive and have enough oxygen to survive, and they can have enough carbon dioxide to survive. If there becomes a large imbalance between the plant and animal life on the planet, the balance can be upset, and the total organic devastation can result.
Bees and wasps have an important part in this ecosystem. In the adult form, both bees and wasps feed upon sugary nectar. This is the sweet substance found in the blossoms of plants and trees. As they go from blossom to blossom, they will pick up the pollen from these plants. Inside the blossom there are the two reproductive parts, the pistil and the stamen. The pistil is the female part of the tree, and the stamen is the male part of the tree, creating pollen.
It is very important that this pollen must be carried to the pistil in order to reproduce the plant. Bees and wasps will pick up this pollen on their legs and bodies, carry it to another blossom, depositing it into the pistil of that tree. By this method, plants and trees can reproduce themselves.

BEE AND WASP DANGERS AND TULSA PEST CONTROL
Many people get frightened when they see a bee or wasp fly to their yard. The truth is that these insects may be capable of stinging you, but probably will not. You are not any sort of threat to them unless you corner them. If they are simply flying in the open air of your yard, they can be a positive help to your plants and trees. Excessive pesticide, and poor applications put in the wrong place can threaten these lifeforms. Without these insects, we can lose our plant life and mess up our ecosystem. So it’s very important that we not spray too much in the wrong places. Spraying down tree blossoms, and other plants with harsh chemicals can damage harmless and helpful bee and wasp populations. Because of this, it is important that you be wary of where are you spraying pesticides.
But that doesn’t mean that bees and wasps can’t be a pest. Usually the area where they become the most negative is in the area of their nest making activities. Both bees and wasps are very protective of their nests and can be very aggressive. Because of this, it is important that when you find a wasp nest or a bee hive too close to your home, it must be eliminated or moved. While a good Broken Arrow exterminator can help you eliminate a wasp nest underneath your eaves and bee hives in inconvenient locations, moving a bee hive or wasp nest is the job of a beekeeper. Many cities have beekeepers that are more than willing to come in and remove a bees hive and take it to a place that’s safer for everyone. Contact your Tulsa pest control company for help with that or a beekeeper.
BEES AND WASP STINGS AND TULSA PEST CONTROL
The stings of bees and wasps can be very painful. The cause of the pain is melittin, the active ingredient in the bee sting. This substance over excites the pain centers in our skin giving us the sensation of extreme heat. This is why often bee stings feel like they’re on fire. Wasps have the same effect, but use a cocktail of neurotoxins in order to do this. The reason why their substances are different is because bees don’t uses their stings to hunt with. The wasp will paralyze small spiders, and grubs in an attempt to gather food for their young.
Normally, bee stings are not a life-threatening issue. If you’re stung by a bee, in many cases, your basic first aid kit can help you to repair any damage and get you ready to heal up. It’s important that if you’re stung by a bee that you remove the stinger because venom is still being pushed into your system by the stinger if it’s still in your skin. But in some cases, people are allergic to bees and wasp stings. In these cases, it’s very important that you get that person to medical attention immediately. If someone with an allergy gets stung, he can go into anaphylactic shock, and the results can be fatal. It’s very important that you contact a medical professional if you have this kind of situation in on your hands.
