Identify Your Stinging Insect
Honey bees, Yellowjacket wasps, Bald-faced hornets, Carpenter bees, Bumble bees, and Polistes wasps account for most of the stinging insect problems reported in Illinois.
- Honey bees are ecologically-important pollinators. Our expert beekeepers and biologists relocate Honey bee colonies alive and without the use of pesticides.
- Yellowjacket wasps nest in holes in the ground, holes on the side of your home, or in gray nests made of paper.
- Bald-faced hornets are easy to identify because they are black and white, and they build gray paper nests.
- Carpenter bees make holes in wood and live inside these holes.
- Bumble bees generally live underground. They are important pollinators, and you should have them removed only if they are close to your home or are posing a danger to your family and pets.
- Polistes wasps are also called Umbrella wasps. Their legs hang down when they fly, and they most commonly build their nests under eaves. Landmark applies a nest formation inhibitor under eaves and within deck railings to prevent them from rebuilding their nests.
What Happens When There are Bees, Wasps, or Hornets on My Home?
When stinging insects nest on your home or in your yard, they must be treated safely. Since bees, wasps, and hornets will become very aggressive when defending their nests, your Landmark technician will use special equipment to apply professional-grade treatment to ensure the problem is quickly resolved. Landmark’s environmentally-friendly treatment is the best way to protect your home and family, and prevents stinging insects from rebuilding their nest on your home.
Why Don’t Bee, Wasp, and Hornet Products I Buy at the Store Solve My Bee, Wasp, and Hornet Problem?
Just because bee, wasp, and hornet treatments are sold at your local hardware store, that doesn’t mean that it’s safe to try them. When Honey bees or Yellowjacket wasps are entering a hole in your house, spraying an over-the-counter remedy can make them venture deeper into your home to avoid the toxic fumes. Hundreds of stinging insects can pour into your living room if enough over-the-counter product is applied to drive them that far in. Another reason that over-the-counter products fail is that they don’t have a residual action, so stinging insects rebuild their nests quickly. Professional-grade products applied by a licensed pest control professional can prevent new nests from forming.
Why Are There Bees, Wasps, and Hornets on My House?
Your home’s roof, soffits, overhangs, vents, and siding are ideal places for bees and wasps to nest, because they look for cracks, holes, and shelter from the rain to build their nests. Landmark proactively applies environmentally-friendly treatments to the cracks and crevices beneath eaves to keep stinging insects out and prevent them from building their nests.

When Honey Bees are entering a hole in your building, they need to be removed. Leaving any honey behind will attract other stinging insects, ants, mice and other pests. The wall may need to be opened so that the honey comb and nest structures can be removed. Landmark Pest Management has beekeepers, masons, and drywallers on staff who are able remove the Honey bee colony alive, repair damage, and restore the area.
The beekeepers on our staff specialize in pesticide-free honey bee removal. Once they have opened the wall to expose the colony, they will remove the queen by placing her into a hive box. While the beekeepers work to scrape every surface clean and remove every bit of wax and honey, the worker bees will follow the scent of their queen’s pheromones and they will join her in the hive box.
A pesticide-free Honey bee removal will not result in any more damage to your home or cost more than a pesticide-centric approach. The wall has to be opened to the same degree in either case to remove the comb and honey. It is not possible to solve a honey bee infestation without removing all of their honey and wax comb from wall voids.
Honey bees are perhaps the most important insect to our environmental health. Colony Collapse and other problems are plaguing honey bees. The honey bees that are living in your building are showing some natural hardiness and resistance to these conditions, and it is very important to remove them alive, so that their naturally resistant genes remain in the gene pool.

Honey bees sometimes swarm when their colonies become too large for a hive. Scouts fly off seeking a suitable new home, while the rest of the swarm waits on a branch for the scouts to return with directions to the new home. Swarms may remain for hours or a couple days, but not longer. Unless swarms rest in areas that threaten human safety, they should be left alone and allowed to leave on their own.
Landmark Pest Management allows swarms to resolve on their own, except in rare situations that require intervention. One such circumstance that required our beekeepers to remove a swarm occurred when one was found on the jet-bridge connected to an aircraft, and the passengers could not exit the aircraft until the swarm was removed. Assisted by a hydraulic lift, our beekeepers used a special bee vacuum to suck up the swarm and remove it within minutes without the use of pesticides.
Send us a Photo
Many stinging insects look similar to one another. Honey bees look like smaller, fuzzy Yellowjackets, and Carpenter bees look like Bumble bees with hairless abdomens. If you feel that you can do so safely, please email us a photo of the insect you’re enquiring about, so we can identify it for you. You may send the image to firstname.lastname@example.org and an expert will respond quickly.
