About Stinging Insects

Bees, wasps, and hornets are an important component of the West Texas environment. Unlike other unwanted insects such as mosquitoes and bed bugs, these flying insects sting only when their home is threatened or they feel provoked.

Bees in Texas

Types of bees in the Lubbock area include:

  • Bumble bees
  • Honey bees
  • Carpenter bees
  • Mason bees and more

Bees tend to be a half-inch to three inches long with long antennae. Color varies by species.


Wasps in Texas

Wasps resemble large flying ants with visible stingers and almond-shaped eyes. Unlike bees, who eat nectar and pollinate flowers, they are carnivores that feed on other insects. A slender body, wings, and bright yellow or orange coloring warn us of their dangerous sting. Yellow jackets, paper wasps, and mud daubers are common here. Baldfaced hornets are the largest and most aggressive of all stinging insects. Their painful stings can require medical attention.

Bee, Wasp, and Hornet Behavior and Risks

Most wasps, bees, and hornets are social insects that build large hives and nests in gutter openings, on buildings, under roofs, and on trees. A group of bees is known as a colony and is supported by a queen bee. Honey bee colonies can have as many as 15,000 workers while wasp and hornet populations are much smaller, but can grow into the hundreds.

As a property owner, you know a colony near your home, business, or outdoor play area can become a danger to children and pets. Bees and wasps don’t carry disease and aren’t parasites. Instead, a wasp or bee sting can lead to life-threatening allergic reactions and even death. Africanized Bees do live in West Texas and are extremely aggressive. They can sting multiple times, swarming victims that come in their path.

Identifying a Problem

Keeping a home and backyard tidy sometimes isn’t enough to prevent pest issues. Most homeowners call Bug Tech when a wasp or bee hive is spotted, unable to remove the source of the nuisance. If you or someone you know has experienced multiple stings or a swarm, our team can also identify the type and source of the colony.

Bee Removal Service

Honeybees are becoming protected by Texas and United States federal law. Bug Tech can still treat honey bee infestations, but because they are pollinators, we are required to take extra precautions and follow guidelines.

We always strive for safe honey bee removal and work with local beekeepers for safe relocation. Our team wears professional beekeeper suits to ensure safety and success during a live bee removal.

Wasp Removal Service

Wasp nests are usually in places such as porches, patios, and underneath roof lines – they pose more of a threat because their nests are in closer proximity to humans and tend to be more aggressive. For these reasons, Bug Tech’s wasp nest removal approach is to knock down the nest and kill eggs, larvae, workers, and queens.

After the removal of a hive/nest, Bug Tech will apply insecticide at the base of the nest and around the surrounding areas. This prevents any wasps from attempting to rebuild a colony.
