Wasp Removal Step-by-Step

How to get rid of wasps - Swarm of bees in treeWondering how to get rid of wasps on your property?

Wasps, bees, and ants belong to the same species of narrow-waisted insects. It’s important to identify what types of wasps you are dealing with to determine the right product and appropriate steps.

If you have bees (not wasps or Africanized honey bees), call for swarm removal to have them rehomed. Bees are an essential part of our ecosystem and should not be destroyed.

Wasp removal (including paper wasp, hornets and yellow jackets), however, is urgent before they become aggressive and hurt someone. A wasp sting is painful and unpleasant.

And they are known for stinging multiple times.

If you have a fear of wasps or other bug phobias, this type of pest management is best left to professionals.

How to Get Rid of Wasps

Unlike bee removal, the products used to get rid of wasps should be high-grade and applied directly to the wasps nest. If you see them after treatment, don’t worry. They will soon disappear.

Before spring, seal or block off entrances into your house, around exterior areas of your home and property, and the exact place where wasp nests were originally found. This is called exclusion in the pest control industry. It goes a long way in keeping unwanted pests from coming back.

Regardless, wasps commonly return to the same area. The traits that made the nest location appealing in the first place will not vanish without correction.
