Get the Facts About Dealing with Wasp Nests

Pest Control Orange County

Most people aren’t fans of pests in general, but certain kinds are more annoying than others. While termites, bed bugs, and ants are all problematic, wasps can be especially vicious. Read ahead to get the facts about how pest control professionals can help you deal with their nests.

Pest control professional can get rid of wasp nests.
It is not a good idea to try getting rid of a wasp nest on your own. Wasps are aggressive, territorial creatures, and they won’t hesitate to sting you if they feel like they’re being threatened. If you want to avoid the trouble altogether, call your pest control professionals. These specialists have already gone through the necessary training to deal with wasps the proper way, which keeps you and your family out of danger. They should also be able to completely remove the nest from your property.

Wasp nests can be bigger than a basketball.
Wasps are not large insects, but their nests can become surprisingly large. It’s the queen’s job to start the nest, which occurs during the spring. It starts off about the size of a golf ball, but it can quickly grow to be much bigger over time. The nest will grow throughout the summer, and more wasps will take up residence. By the time it’s done growing, the nest might be even bigger than a basketball.

Wasps make nests out of wood.
Although you might not expect it, most wasps use chewed wood to make their nests. Next time you come across a wasp nest that looks papery, you’ll know that chewed wood was behind the process. Certain types of wasps will also use clay and mud to create their nests, so if you see either of these kinds of nests, give your pest control professionals a call.
