Wasps are insects that are commonly found in gardens and outdoor spaces during the summer months. While they play an important role in pollination and pest control, they can also pose a significant threat to humans when they feel threatened or provoked. If you are experiencing a wasp infestation, it’s important to contact a professional pest control company to ensure that the issue is resolved safely and effectively.
At Pest Services Company, we offer a range of solutions for wasp control. Our technicians are trained to identify the species of wasp and determine the most effective treatment approach. We use environmentally friendly products and techniques to ensure that your property is treated safely and with minimal impact on the environment.
Our services include nest knockdown, which involves removing the wasp nest from your property, and killing current wasps to prevent them from returning. We also offer preventative treatments to deter wasps from nesting on your property in the future.
At Pest Services Company, we use a variety of methods to kill emerging wasps, depending on the species and the severity of the infestation. One method we use is insecticidal dust, which is applied directly to the nest. This dust works by clinging to the wasps’ bodies and wings, effectively suffocating them.
Another method we use is a liquid insecticide, which is sprayed directly onto the nest. This insecticide contains a synthetic pyrethroid, a type of chemical that is toxic to wasps but has a low toxicity to humans and other animals. Once the wasps come into contact with the insecticide, they will begin to die off.
In addition to these methods, we may also use traps to catch and kill wasps. These traps are designed to attract wasps with a sweet-smelling bait, then trap them inside a container where they will eventually die.
It’s important to note that attempting to kill wasps on your own can be dangerous, as they can become aggressive and sting in large numbers. That’s why we always recommend leaving wasp removal and control to the professionals at Pest Services Company. Our technicians have the experience and knowledge needed to safely and effectively remove wasp nests and control infestations.
We’re passionate about helping people just like you get rid of unwanted pest problems. As such, we are proud to be the only pest control company in Washington DC promising excellence in value, service, and trust.
No, not all wasps are aggressive. Some species, like paper wasps, are docile and only sting when provoked. However, yellow jackets and hornets are more aggressive and can pose a threat to humans.
If you encounter a wasp, try to remain calm and still. Avoid swatting or swiping at it, as this can provoke an attack. Slowly and calmly move away from the area.
You can prevent wasps from nesting on your property by sealing all openings and cracks in your home, keeping garbage cans tightly sealed, and eliminating any sources of standing water.
This company has professional technicians and their residential services are very thorough. The technician climbed up on a 40 foot ladder to remove a birds nest in one of my exhaust pipes and they replaced the exhaust cover. I will definitely use them again.– Kelly B. I had a home inspection done, preparing my house for sale. The inspector told me I had termites in one room of my basement. Pest Services had helped me with a mouse problem, so I called them first for a free inspection. The gentleman (Tim) who came took a quick look and told me that I DON’T have termites (thank heaven), but a powderpuff beetle infestation that I can take care of on my own, and said the spray I used for termites will take care of them. He pointed out a few beetle bodies (way tiny) and the webbing they leave. He said he would provide a report for me on PSC’s letterhead to answer the inspector’s problem.I guess it’s awful to be so cynical, but I’ve reached the point when I’m amazed to find such honesty – they could have charged me a lot for my “termites”.– Christine H. They come out each month on the third Monday and they are always on time. They are friendly and will treat for other things if I ask them to. They drive nice trucks and the price is about average I guess.– Garry B.
