there was i bee in the sheets of my bed and my husband got stung on his leg. Now my question is are they always in packs, if i see one do i have to worry about another one being where around? i also have a son that is very allergic to bees and he sleeps in the same room do i have to worry about a bee being in his sheets too? also can i go back to sleep in my bed or do i have to worry that there is going to be another bee there? Im very sorry for all the qustion ii just want to know if my family is safe both me and my son is allergic and im scared. Should i call pest control?
The first thing I’d like to know just what kind of bee you found in your bed. Do you think it was a carpenter bee? If so, it was most likely leaving an existing nest which is what most do this time of year. One can never tell how many more times this might happen unless you know you have several nests. As explained in our CARPENTER BEE CONTROL ARTICLE, these nests will commonly lead to them getting inside the home if not treated properly the year before. In fact, this post discusses this exact problem happening to someone that closed up some holes in their sunroom:
Now if you are able to see a lot of bee activity outside the home at this time, determining the kind of bee which is active will then enable you to find out how to treat the nest. It’s still early spring and my guess is you either had a rogue adult carpenter bee emerge inside and most likely you won’t see anymore. But if you know there is a history of them being outside the home, either treating or hiring a service company to take care of any nest locations would be warranted to insure no one else gets stung.
In summary, if you learn you have some other bee or wasp and not carpenter bees, go to our main site www.bugspray.com and choose the species you’ve identified for more information on what will be needed to treat local infestations. At that time you can either hire a service company or get the products we have listed and do the treatment yourself. Of course you can always call us to discuss the problem too.jonathan www.bugspray.com 1-800-877-7290
