Wasp Nest Removal

Wasp Nest Removal

You're busy at work, at your home, and you definitely do not have time to deal with wasps. You might even be tempted to ignore the problem with the hopes that it will all just magically go away on its own. But continue reading below to learn all the reasons why that's probably not such a good idea.

Peace of Mind

We are here to offer peace of mind and help you take back your home and yard so you, your family, and your pets can relax in a safe and comfortable environment. One call is all it takes to schedule a free estimate at a time that works well for you. We'll remove any pests, fix the damage they caused, prevent pest re-entry, and then clean and sanitize the area so you can resume living life to the fullest. Don't put it off. Those wasps are not going anywhere. And while they are on your property they can cause danger to your family.

Why Wasps Are So Dangerous

Do you know why wasps can be worse than honey bees? Honey bees can only sting once, but wasps don't have that same attribute and can sting you again and again. They are also easily provoked, even by accident. If you hit or smash a wasp, pheromones are released that will alert other wasps to attack you. Wasps are very aggressive when defending their colony and are more likely to attack when you are within 7-8 yards of their nest.

Wasps Can Cause Structural Damage

Wasp nests or hives can cause structural damage when they are built inside of your home. When lying on drywall, the nests or hives can cause the drywall to disintegrate. As the drywall disintegrates, more and more wasps will come into the structure leading to a dangerous situation.

Signs To Look For

Here are some signs your home may have been invaded by a wasp colony:
  • Nests or hives in and around structures
  • High numbers of wasps, yellow jackets, or hornets
  • Constant activity of wasps coming from or going into any particular opening

Best Time to Get Rid of a Wasp Nest

Any time that a wasp nest becomes a nuisance or a threat to your safety (or peace of mind) is the right time to remove the wasp's nest. Towards the end of Summer, wasps, particularly yellow-jackets and hornets tend to become more aggressive as they are preparing their nests for winter, so stinging may become more likely even though the wasps were seemingly minding their own business earlier in the year. Late Autumn tends to be the safest time to get rid of wasp colonies because as the weather turns cooler, the queens and males mate and stay in protected areas during the winter. It may seem like you are no longer being pestered by the flying menaces, but they are actually just waiting to start the nesting cycle all over again in the spring.

Benefits of Hiring a Professional

Removing a wasp nest on your own can be dangerous and risky. Wasp stings can cause allergic reactions and can sometimes lead to death, especially in large amounts. It's important to hire a professional because:
  • Wasp nests can be difficult to treat when they are located below ground.
  • Our technicians can identify what type of wasp is causing the problem and use the best treatment to get rid of it for good.
  • Our technicians use protective gear to keep safe during treatment.
