Insect Spraying for Long Island
While some winged insects are beneficial to your garden, more than a few are considered pests, and some can actually be dangerous to your family and pets. Here are some examples of winged insects that are common in our area, with information about what you should do if you see them.
Yellowjackets build their flat paper nests in stacks, which are surrounded by a paper envelope. They usually build their nests below ground and in other protected locations. Social wasps use their nests for only one season. Unlike bees, these wasps aggressively defend their nests and can inflict multiple stings. They produce very large colonies with some yellow jacket nests containing as many as 30,000 individuals. These insects are considered to be beneficial because they feed their young a wide variety of insects. They become a nuisance, however, when they build nests in or near structures; scavenge for food in recreational areas and in other places frequented by humans, and seek overwintering sites in structures. If you see yellow jackets or their nests, call us for professional pest control service.
Mosquitoes have a deservedly awful reputation. Sometimes called “the biggest killer on the planet” or “the most deadly animal in the world,” with just one bite it can cause great havoc by spreading devastating illnesses like West Nile Virus, Encephalitis, Malaria, Chikungunya, and even Heartworm in pets. Here on Long Island, mosquitoes are a particularly difficult problem to handle, because of our proximity to the water, and our being surrounded by marshlands.
