Can Bees and Wasps Sting Through Clothing?


Bees and wasps sting through clothing, even heavy fabrics like denim and thick sweatshirts, if they’re pulled tight to your skin. If you’re wearing loose fitting clothing, bees, wasps and hornets may get trapped inside and sting you in their frantic attempts to escape.

So wearing a few layers of clothing will not necessarily protect you from getting and bee sting or a wasp sting. If you’re planning to do bee or wasp removal yourself, while wearing added layers is a step in the right direction and better than exposed skin, it’s not guaranteed to save you from being stung during the bee or wasp removal and treatment process.

The best, safest method of bee and wasp control is to call a bee and wasp removal expert who will have the proper tools and protective gear to safely do bee and wasp removal and prevent bee and wasp stings.
