If you live in Vaughan, you’re no stranger to some of Ontario’s most common (and most annoying) pests, including cockroaches, fruit flies, carpenter ants, rodents, centipedes, millipedes, spiders, bed bugs, and wasps and hornets. These pests range from annoying to downright dangerous, and if you have an allergy to their stings, wasps can be one of the deadliest. Even if you’re not allergic, attempting to remove a wasp nest on your own can quickly become a catastrophe. If you’re on a ladder when you’re attacked by a swarm of wasps, you can gravely injure yourself due to falling off. The safest and most reliable way to remove a wasp nest in Vaughan is to call a wasp nest removal company that already owns the equipment and the chemicals that lets them safely remove the nest.
Two of the most common stinging pests you see in Ontario are bald-faced hornets and yellowjackets. Unlike bees, who feed off of pollen, wasps are attracted to two types of food, depending on the season. In the spring and summer, they’re drawn to foods that are high in protein like meat. They plague garbage bins and can be found by roadkill carcasses, because the protein is used to raise generations of more wasps. By the fall, when hives stop producing new generations, wasps turn to sweet and sugary substances. You may have barely noticed a wasp nest in your yard all summer, but by August and September they will be intolerable. If you have a fully developed wasp nest growing in your residence, it’s a good idea to seal all your garbage and recycling, and cover your food and drinks when you are outside.
The best way to find wasp nests in your home is being able to identify what the nests typically look like. Wasp nests have a papery substance because they are made from chewed wood, and they are usually built in early spring by queen wasps when they begin laying their eggs. By mid-summer, when the worker wasps have completed the nest, it can reach the size of a basketball. Late in the season, wasps become more aggressive, too.
Vaughan wasp removal company Power Pest Control suggests checking your garden sheds, trees, near roof shutters, or even within your walls if you can’t find the nest. It is not a good idea to remove the wasp nest yourself, especially because wasps are able to sting multiple times at once. Pest control companies like Power Pest Control can do it cheaply and safely, even using insecticides that are safe for children, the elderly, and women who are pregnant.
