Every living creature, from the grandiose to the repugnant, has something to contribute to our atmosphere. If you’ve ever complained about an annoying insect that just won’t quit flying around your head, someone has almost certainly pointed out to you just how beneficial the little pests are for one reason or another. While they may have their place in the world, you don’t necessarily want them in your living space or even near it. Here are 3 types of flying insects that you want existing in, on or around your house.

1. Mosquitoes Believe it or not, mosquitoes do offer something optimistic to the planet. In addition to being major pollinators, the mosquito also serves as a food resource for a wide range of animals from birds to fish.

2. Bees The jingle of a bee buzzing around on a summer day can be further than just an annoyance to somebody who is sensitive to to the insect, it can be downright menacing. For most of us the sting of a bee means a little pain and possibly swelling but for someone with an allergy, it can be a matter of life or death. Even if you’re not allergic when bees attack in enough numbers their sting is potentially fatal to anyone, especially young children.

Much of the food we rely on wouldn’t be available without bees. But that doesn’t mean we want large numbers of them on our property.

If you find a bee nest near or inside your home call a beekeeper or professional Pest Control Perth to have them removed. Bees provide several important services to our ecology. They pollinate a vast number of flowering plants, vegetables, and fruits.

Without them, many species wouldn’t survive. However, for most of us, mosquitoes will never be something more than a blood sucking exasperation whose bite can pass on a number of dangerous viruses. Over thousands of people die each year from mosquito-borne diseases, including malaria, yellow fever, West Nile virus, and encephalitis. The best methods to control mosquitoes and get rid of them from your home is by eliminating the insect’s breeding ground which is the standing water that accumulates in old tires, planters, clogged gutters, and puddles. Make sure doors and windows shut securely to prevent access to your home.

3. Wasps offer numerous of the same benefits as bees, including pollination, but they also pose the same threats. To someone who has an allergic reaction their sting can be just as deadly as that of a bee and unlike their cousin, a wasp can sting multiple times rather than only once. When you see a wasp’s nest in or around your home, you should have it removed as soon as possible. Most wasps won’t attack humans unless they are provoked, but obviously trying to destroy their home qualifies as a provocation. If you decide to remove the nest yourself wear protective clothing and try to plan your attack as early in the year as possible you should have knowledge about how do you get rid of a wasp nest. The summer months are not a good time to try to dispose of a wasps nest, as the colony population will be at an all-time high and the insects are likely to respond in big numbers. When it comes to removing a wasps nest from inside or around your home, the earlier in the year the better.
