Stinging Insects Near Boise

Wasps

Wasps are dominant in Boise from spring to fall. The females carry a stinger, and unlike bees that only sting once, wasps will sting repeatedly, potentially causing severe injury. The wasp nests under decks, crawl spaces, and roof eaves. They're easy to identify by their wasps nests, which look like paper umbrellas. The wasp is a formidable foe because it secretes pheromones when in danger. Subsequently, the pheromone signal alerts other wasps who come to the rescue of those in trouble. That's why wasps are a dangerous insect to handle without proper gear and experience.

Yellow Jackets

This is the most defensive wasp species giving a sting first and ask questions later approach to every encounter. If threatened, yellow jackets will often pursue and sting repeatedly. Multiple stings will easily land you in a hospital in the case of an allergic reaction. You will most likely find yellow jacket nests in trees, gutters, and shrubs around the property. Yellow jackets are the most dangerous to exterminate because of their aggression and painful sting. It's best to call in experts when you notice a yellow jacket nest on your property.

Hornets

The most common hornet in Boise and the Treasure Valley area is the bald-faced hornet. It's actually an 'aerial' yellow jacket, and not a true hornet at all. You can identify it by the ivory-white markings on the face, thorax, abdomen and legs. Many gardeners consider it beneficial because it preys on other insects, including yellow jackets. It's also a pollinator. Like other wasps, it builds a paper-like nest. But if the bald-faced hornet builds a nest under your roof eaves, in shrubbery near your yard or within 10 feet of your home, it can create a danger. Certainly, people with known allergies to wasp stings should have any nests close to their homes removed immediately by professionals.
