Insects have always been a part of the Canadian outside experience, whether at barbecues, football matches, or picnics in the back yard. When pests strike fear on your loved ones and friends, but now is the time to take action to take care of the problem.
We’re familiar with stingers in general, but how much do we know about wasp control in particular? Are they toxic? How best to eliminate a nest? These questions and others are answered here.
How do I distinguish them from a bee?
The two are often confused for one another, but gaps exist which set them apart. They also have slender legs and a more distinct separation between the mid- and back- section.
Are they dangerous?
They are able to sting multiple times, unlike the parasitic who loses its ability to bite after the very first moment.
The insects are venomous insects, and depending upon the individual one sting could bring about a critical response. Upsetting an whole nest can, of course, result in many stings which could prove fatal to even the healthiest person.
When are they in their summit?
The stingers are seasonal animals and are usually most active in the warmer months from June to September.
Unlike other insect problems that may be managed by finding pest management products in the city, coping with a nest is always best left to the professionals. The slightest wrong move could induce the nest-sometimes containing 1000+ stingers-into attack mode.
How is a nest eliminated?
A skilled pest management technician will spray a potent dust into the nest that coats the insects and kills them. The majority of the process usually takes a couple hours and should remove the threat in 1 treatment. A followup appointment may be necessary to kill some still lingering
How can I keep them away?
Once the nest action is eliminated, it’s a good idea to steps wasp control later on. When dining outside, try to keep food indoors until it’s time to eat, and also keep meat covered until ready to barbecue. Garbage and compost bins should always be sealed tight.
While there’s not much to be done concerning the occasional stinger, be watching for indications of a nest on your home. What may look to be a benign situation one minute could escalate to a crisis the next. If you need help with wasp removal contact a pest professional like Centurian to help.
