If you’ve seen a number of wasps swarming around your home or office, you are likely a bit concerned. Wasps can obviously sting, and for some people a wasp sting is more than a minor painful annoyance, it can actually be life threatening. At EcoTech, we offer a wide range of wasp extermination services to ensure you won’t have to worry about pesky stinging insects, or any other critters that may give you the “heebie-jeebies”.
Signs You May Need a Wasp Exterminator
Below are a few signs that you may have a wasp infestation and need an exterminator to come take care of your wasp problem.
Wasps Flying Around Consistently
This may be obvious, but if you see a number of wasps flying around your property you could have a wasp infestation. Multiple wasps circling your property are either looking for their nest, or attempting to build one.
Visible Wasp Nests
If wasp nests are visible around your property, you likely have a wasp problem. Depending on the types of wasps that are present on your property, the nests will either be made from mud or chewed wood. Wasps can often be very territorial, and will therefore protect their nests if disturbed. Because of this, it’s important to call a pest control company like Eco Tech if you begin to notice wasp nests anywhere around your property.
As mentioned above, certain wasps will build nests from chewed wood. If you notice any holes in wood surfaces around the exterior of your home, you could be dealing with a wasp problem.
How to Prevent Wasp Nests Around Your Home
There are a number of wasp prevention steps you can take before you ever develop a wasp problem. Be sure to fix any broken screens and caulk small holes in windows and door frames. This way you’ll prevent wasps from building nests in these areas. Being proactive about fixing these issues can help you to avoid many of the headaches that occur with a wasp infestation.
