Any stinging insect nesting in your home can be unsettling, but there’s no need to worry. Our experts know how to handle any type of wasp in and around your house. First, though, it’s essential to be able to identify different wasps because some are more aggressive than others.
Here’s the first step for managing a wasp nest in your home.
Identify the Type of Wasp:
Some people say wasps are not beneficial, but we’re here to negate that idea. Wasps are great pollinators, and some are even helpful with keeping garden ecosystems in check. Here are three of the most common wasp species:
These wasps have skinny black bodies and will only attack if provoked. They eat nectar, as well as small insects, and their nests are made of mud in the shape of a pipe organ.
Although they look intimidating, paper wasps are docile unless threatened. They have golden-brown-to-dark-brown bodies and build small nests in the shrubs, bushes, or the corners of your roof. Also, they can help keep your garden in balance.
Yellowjackets are small with hard yellow-and-black shells. These wasps are quite aggressive and don’t distinguish between people and animals. Their stings can be quite painful, so it’s best to consult a local professional like us about yellowjacket removal.
