If you operate a resort here in Maui, the last thing you want to hear is that one of your guests was stung by a bee, wasp, or hornet. It is even worse when allergies are involved. A stinging incident can turn into a crisis quickly.

Stinging insects make their homes in many places that can make them a threat to you, your employees, and your guests. They build their nests on rooflines, inside eaves, up in rafters, and under overhangs. This brings them into close contact with guests as they lounge on balconies or enjoy outdoor areas and with employees as they retrieve items from outbuildings.

Some stinging insects build their nests in trees and holes, which can create a swarming danger if anyone gets off the beaten paths you've established. Yellow jackets and other aggressive pests will swarm when their nests are threatened, and will often pursue for several yards.

Dealing with stinging insects requires an education in entomology. There are different protocols required for bees, wasps, and hornets. Improper control of these insects will not only be ineffective, but potentially hazardous. An educated professional will also know all the regulatory requirements set forth by the Environmental Protection Agency regarding the use of pesticides, but this doesn't mean there aren't some things you and your staff can do to prevent issues.

Safety Tips for Stinging Insects

  • Make sure all exterior garbage cans are sealed. Open trash will draw stinging insects onto your property and close to your exterior walls.
