As a general rule, most types of bees and wasps are less active at night than they are during the day. Bees, especially, depend on the sun to know which direction to fly to find nectar. Bees communicate flight plans to one another and the direction of the sun is often important.
You may notice fewer bees and wasps coming and going from their nest, if any at all, when it is dark out. Don’t make the mistake of thinking that this means it will be easier to kill bees and wasps inside the nest. Though they may be less active, they will be immediately aware of a threat. In fact, some bee and wasp species will even charge at lights at night. Some people have reported being stung, simply for being near the light of headlights or streetlights.
So when is the best time to kill bees and wasps?
Unfortunately, there really isn’t one. Simply because it’s easier to see and assess how to control bees and wasps when it’s light out, so you’re better off handling the problem during the day. No matter what time of day it is, bee and wasp extermination should be done with extreme caution. Unless you have proper protective gear and experience controlling bees and wasps, you’re better off letting a professional bee and wasp extermination company handle the problem.
