Wasps by nature will infest any place that gives them access to food. Wasps typically only eat sweet foods like honeydew, plant saps, and sugary treats. If you have anything in your home that’s easily accessible and resembles sweet food, chances are, you’ll attract wasps into your home if not stored away properly. They can also be drawn to plants in your garden with sweet properties and nest in your home due to their proximity.
While wasps are pretty predatorial in the wildlife and insect world, they do still need protection and shelter from the outside environment. Wasps will usually nest on roofs, inside walls, and untouched rooms. These areas aren’t only undisturbed by larger predators, they also provide shelter from the cold during the winter months of the year.
Though wasps are only attracted to sweet foods and flavors, they can still cause food contaminations to humans. As insects, they naturally bring in pathogens and bacteria as they travel and move around your home. If they happen to land on your food, they can carry the same pathogens as flies. If you let your wasp infestation grow, you’ll be more susceptible to food contamination and possible illnesses.
While wasps are stinging insects and are terrible at any level of infestation, leaving a wasp nest to grow and repopulate will make you more susceptible to getting stung. If you get stung by a wasp, chances are, you’ll have an allergic reaction to it immediately. Though most reactions for a wasp’s sting are minimal and only last for 24 hours, it should be avoided at all costs.
With our team of wasp exterminators, we can easily treat any wasp infestation regardless of the severity of the wasp problem. At Quality Affordable Pest Control, we assess each service area to ensure that we come up with the proper nest removal plan to treat your concerns. With our tools, training, and experience, we’re sure to get rid of these stinging insects in no time. Whether it be the common wasp or bald-faced hornets, rest assured that we can handle any type of infestation.
A: If properly treated, a wasp extermination treatment can take 1 to 2 days to take full effect. Over this period of time, the wasps inside the nest will slowly die leaving the shell of the wasps' nest to be easily and safely removed in a few days.
A: Once the entire colony has been killed, there’s virtually no chance for that nest to cause a re-infestation. This means that the treatment is permanently effective. However, the treatment doesn’t prevent new wasps from infesting your home. If you want to permanently get rid of wasps on your property, you’ll need to seal all food and entrances or have a preventive treatment done.
A: The sting of a wasp is known to be extremely painful and causes many allergic reactions. Depending on the type of wasp whether it be a paper wasp or an Asian giant wasp, the effect of its painful sting may vary. While it’s possible to die from a wasp sting, it's quite unlikely to happen unless you are severely allergic to them. At most, you should have some swelling, itchiness, and other common allergic reactions for around 24 hours before they subside.
A: Wasps do play a vital role in the ecosystem of your garden as well as in other parts of nature. They can actually lower the number of other insects in your home. However, they are considered pests themselves. The presence of a wasp is enough to worry as it could mean that an entire nest is nearby. If you constantly see a wasp in your home, it may be time to call an exterminator to locate and remove the wasp's nest in your area.
A: Though there are many home treatments and over-the-counter ways to treat wasp infestations, it's best to call a professional exterminator. With the risks of aggravating the wasps or insufficiently treating the nest, you may open yourself up for injury and reinfestation of wasps. Having a professional exterminator ensures your safety and the effectiveness of the treatment in general.
