Have you noticed wasps swarming around your property? If so, chances are that a nest is nearby. It’s extremely important to locate the nest and have it removed safely by a professional pest control company as soon as possible. If wasps find entry points to the structure of your home, their nests can cause expensive damage to your ceiling or walls.
Not only are these pests a nuisance, but they can also be quite dangerous. When wasps are threatened, they release pheromones that alert other wasps within their nests to swarm and attack the alleged threat. Wasps are especially hazardous because they can sting repeatedly, unlike bees which typically die after stinging once, causing serious harm to their victims.
Now the question is: where can these wasp nests be located?
These are 5 common places to find wasps nests around your home:
1. Trees and Bushes
2. Eaves, Decks, and Patios
3. Wall Cavities
4. Near Light Fixtures
5. Mailbox Stands
How to remove wasps nests from your property
Once you have identified and located a wasp nest on your property, call a professional pest control company immediately. We have the knowledge and equipment to safely identify, remove, and treat wasp nests and other pests.
When a colony of wasps abandons their nest, it will not be reused. However, there are some measures you can take on yourself to prevent them from making more nests on your property. For example, sealing and repairing any openings around doors, windows, and exterior walls will help keep the wasps from entering and making new nests. It is also recommended to keep tree branches, bushes, and shrubs away from your home, as these are attractive to wasps for nest making.
