Tri-County Pest Control Q&A: Wasp Infestations
Hi folks and welcome to our latest edition of a Tri-County Pest Control Q&A. Today, we’re going to tackle wasps. As the weather gets warmer and your garden seedlings begin to flourish you’re likely to see these pests more often as they come out of hibernation.
Q. How do I know I may have a wasp infestation and what can be done to alleviate it?
A. If you suspect you may have a wasp infestation, you probably do. Whether inside your home or outdoors on your property, the best thing to do is call us and one of our Tri-County service techs will come out to eradicate the issue. In most cases, wasps will find their way inside through small openings that lead inside the home.
They make their way inside because they’re generally seeking food, a place to nest, a protective shelter in which to hibernate and sometimes, even by accident. If you sight a wasps nest in or around your home, call us to have it removed safety.
Sometimes, in occasion, wasps will happen indoors entirely by accident as hitchhikers. They can be stealth when they want and will find anything to travel in or upon to make their way into our homes in search of food.
Wasps are not to be taken lightly. They can cause a serious stinging situation or worse or someone has an allergic reaction to a sting.
Again, call us immediately if you suspect they may be taking up residence anywhere on your property — indoors ot out.
3. Wasps that get inside by happenstance such as entering through an open door or window or become “hitchhikers” who are accidentally brought inside. Wasps are constantly seeking new sources of food for their nest mates. Therefore, it is not surprising that wasps would investigate the inside of homes if they can readily get inside the home. In addition, while it does not happen too often, wasps can unintentionally get inside if they “hitch a ride” on just about anything we might bring inside our homes and not notice the hitchhiking wasp.
