There is a lot of discussion about protecting pollinators, and rightfully so! I don’t think humans would exist if not for honey bees, bumblebees, and other pollinators. They are by far one of the most important little buggers on the planet.
Having said all that there are other stinging insects that need to be controlled for safety reasons. Let’s rewind for a minute. What makes a pollinator a pollinator? The little hairs that are all over the body that allows pollen to be picked up and transferred to where it has to be transferred to.
Stinging insects like, let’s say, bald-faced hornets, are grumpy little buggers, and sometimes need to be controlled. What about killing pollinators you say? Well just by their very name it’s easy to come to the conclusion that they are not the best pollinators. they are “BALD” faced hornets. They have very little hairs on their bodies and therefore are not the best pollinators.
Yellow Jackets, wasps, and hornets should be left alone if they are in areas that are not going to bother people because they have a purpose, but if the hornet’s nest is low to the ground or the yellow jackets nest is in your lawn you have to take action.
DIY approaches should not be considered when dealing with these insects as they can become very aggressive if dealt with in the wrong way.
