Wasp Removal Strategies

With over 30,000 species worldwide, wasps are incredibly diverse insects. However, the most common U.S. varieties have a few things in common. Bright warning colors, painful stings, and attraction to sweets can all describe the paper wasp, yellow jacket, bald-faced hornet, and European hornet. Nesting underground, in trees, on buildings, and even inside houses, these pests can be both a nuisance and a danger to homeowners.

Signs Wasps are on Your Property

You’ll usually notice wasps on your property because they’ll be hovering around a certain area. They also are attracted to flowering plants. The surest sign though is finding an active wasp nest.

Dangers of Wasp Infestation

Wasps are best known for stinging those who get too close to their nests. This is problematic when hives are built inside homes, around yards, or underfoot in lawns, where avoiding them can be impossible. Stings are typically dangerous only to those with venom allergies, though they can be quite painful. Nests in or on buildings may cause additional problems. A wasp infestation in the wall or attic buzzes loudly and can damage drywall, compromising structural integrity and allowing entry into homes.

Entry into property

Small and highly mobile, the wasp can be difficult to keep away from homes. Since they are able to enter houses through tiny cracks in siding or around vents and windows, the pests frequently nest inside hollow walls, as well as in trees or under yards.

Trapping & Removal

Due to the health and safety risks involved, homeowners inexperienced with removing nests should not attempt to handle them alone. While effective pesticides are available, using them incorrectly on hives will only provoke the wasp colony inside. It is also not recommended to seal infested building exteriors with the pests still inside, as they may find their way indoors when they create a new exit. The trained wildlife experts at Trutech are best equipped to deal with wasp infestations quickly and safely.

Prevention & Exclusion

Since wasps can build nests almost anywhere, preventing their entry into yards and homes can be tricky. To avoid problems with the pests indoors, seal any cracks in building exteriors that might give them access. If nests do appear on the property, keep children and pets a safe distance away and avoid the area. If simply ignoring wasps is not a long-term possibility, more drastic control measures may be needed.
