Wasps are interesting creatures that provide many benefits. For instance, they help to control the populations of other insects by preying on caterpillars, spiders, ants, crickets, and flies. Still, that doesn’t mean you should let them thrive on your property. Some stinging insects are more cause for concern than others, and wasps are among the more problematic of the bunch. Unlike bees, which often die after stinging you once, wasps can sting you repeatedly, and their stings are very painful. In addition, they may do damage to fruit on your trees when they are seeking out sugary foods. Because of these consequences, it is important to remove the wasps on your property.
Here are a few helpful facts you should know about wasps and wasp removal:
1. Wasps are less active at night. Like humans, wasps are active during the day and less active at night. Because most of them will be inside their nest for the night, the best time to spray a wasp nest is after the sun goes down. This will ensure that you eliminate as many of the wasps as possible.
2. There are several common places wasps build nests. If you are unable to locate a wasp nest, some of the places you should look include inside the garage, attic, bushes, or cracks in the walls. You can also look beneath your deck or eaves and along the edges of your roof.
3. You should never tackle wasp removal yourself. Wasp removal is very dangerous since their stings can cause severe allergic reactions and even death. You should always call a pest control professional instead because they have the necessary safety equipment.
