If you are having trouble with bee or wasp nests
Bees and wasps are active from summer to fall. If you reach into a tree or step into a thicket, please be sure to check if there are bees or wasps around you. If you are stung, please go to a medical treatment facility for consultation.
Removal of bee or wasp nests
The city does not provide bee/wasp nest removal services. The property owner or manager is responsible for removal. However, removal of a "suzume-bachi" or large "Vespinae" hornets are extremely dangerous. In this case, it is best to hire a specialist to remove the nest.
◎For contact information for wasp nest removal specialists, please contact the Environmental Service Division, or visit the Kashiwa City homepage.
