Yellowjacket Wasp

Discovering a wasp infestation in your home can be alarming. These buzzing intruders can pose serious risks with their painful stings and potential for allergic reactions. At Bug-A-Way Pest Control, we understand the urgency of addressing this issue swiftly and safely. Here are some steps you can take if you find yourself dealing with a wasp problem.v

1. Identify the Infestation

First, confirm that you’re dealing with wasps. Look for nests in common areas such as under eaves, in attics, sheds, or trees. Wasps typically build papery nests and are more aggressive than bees, especially when their nest is disturbed.

2. Keep Calm and Don’t Swat

Wasps can become aggressive if they feel threatened. Avoid swatting at them, as this can provoke an attack. Stay calm and move slowly to avoid drawing attention to yourself.

3. Seal Entry Points

Inspect your home for gaps, cracks, and holes that could allow wasps to enter. Seal these openings with caulk or another suitable material to prevent more wasps from getting inside.

4. Call Professional Pest Control

The safest and most effective way to handle a wasp infestation is to contact a professional pest control service. At Bug-A-Way Pest Control, our experienced technicians use specialized equipment and techniques to remove wasp nests and prevent future infestations. We prioritize your safety and peace of mind, ensuring the job is done right the first time.

5. Prevent Future Infestations

Once the infestation is dealt with, take preventative measures to avoid future problems. Regularly inspect your home for signs of wasp activity, keep food and trash sealed, and maintain your property to minimize attractive nesting sites.
