Wasp issues and how to solve them

Wasp removal from Absolute Pest ManagementNobody enjoys the presence of wasps, and when found in your home they can cause a lot of anxiety. They are not terribly dangerous, but because they can sting, they can be a nuisance. Nothing is more troublesome than having to worry whether your children are safe in your own home. Pets, especially small ones, are also at risk. Here is an important fact to remember though; not all wasps sting, and most wasps only sting when they are provoked. Some sting only when they are making a group assault on a victim. Therefore, most people understand the need for wasp removal.

During the summer months, it is quite common for insects to appear inside of homes and businesses. While you may think that they are recent guests, they actually probably made their entrance last season, and spent the winter months in basements and attics, hibernating in the walls and soffits of your home. While we deal with ladybugs, stinkbugs, and cluster flies, we realize that these bugs will not bite us or carry harmful diseases. Wasps, however, are a totally different story. They can leave some serious pain when physically provoked, thus warranting wasp removal.

One of the most common wasps, the “paper wasp”, makes an umbrella shaped honeycomb in chimneys and attics and around ledges in the eaves of a home. This paper is made from finely chewed pieces of wood and salivary secretions. Most male wasps die off during the season, but not before impregnating the Queens. The Queen then seeks out a place to hibernate for the winter, and walls and attics provide great cover for this practice. There is little you can do to prevent them from entering your home, as they can get into the smallest of cracks. Wasp removal is your safe alternative, by calling Absolute Pest Management.
