For homeowners across the country, wasps can be a problem in summer. For many reasons, professional pest control companies are better suited to find and remove their nests. People with children and those who are sensitive to allergies should be cautious as the venom of wasps can cause severe, sometimes fatal reactions.
Many homeowners might not be able to reach the nests and remove them effectively. Professionals always suggest using good quality bug spray to remove the wasps from their nest and then remove the nest from its place.
It is important to identify the type of wasp that you have encountered to be able to prepare yourself and get to grips with what you are doing. There are two types of wasps: solitary and social. If you see a wasp flying alone and does not move towards other wasps or nests, it is most likely a solitary one. Solitary wasps are usually gentle and won’t bother your family unless provoked.
However, social wasps nest in groups and can be annoying to you or your family. These feisty pests will return to the same spot and establish a territorial territory once they have built a nest. This is where homeowner problems begin.
Most wasps prefer to build nests in shaded, protected areas like under eaves or porch roofs, decking, sheds, decking, and steps. Because wasps can maneuver easily into tight spaces and burrow into the ground, or build their nests high up in the canopy of trees, nests can be difficult to find. Only professionals can do this job in a better way.
