Tell Wasps to Buzz Off

What’s noisy, ugly, and painful if you bump into it? No, we’re not talking about your annoying boss or neighbor—we’re talking about wasp nests.

Don’t get us wrong; even wasps have their good points. For example, they eat many other pests that can destroy crops or spread diseases. Still, that doesn’t mean you should be happy to host them in your home. Wasps can cause extensive property damage, and they can also be dangerous if provoked—which isn’t hard to do.

Dustin Pest Control has more than 40 years of experience removing wasps and their nests from properties in Central California. In addition to removing the immediate threat posed by these flying nuisances, we can also create a plan to keep them away from your home in the future.

The only kind of wasp you should want to hang out with is the underrated 80s hair metal band. Get the flying, buzzing kind off your property by requesting a quote from us today.

What Do You Need To Know About Wasp Removal?

Can Wasps Damage My Home?

Wasps aren’t as notorious as termites for causing property damage, but several species can chew through wood. A wasp infestation can threaten your deck, porch, or even your walls (if you’re unlucky enough to have a nest inside your home).

Sometimes, wood wasps and horntail wasps burrow into construction wood and lay eggs—then hatch months later, after the house is built. Wasps also pose a health and safety risk to humans since they tend to attack in swarms and can cause severe allergic reactions.

Wasps can make their way into structures through incredibly small openings and may enter a home in any of the following ways:

  • Through gaps in the mortar between bricks on exterior walls
  • Around the edges of poorly-sealed doors and windows
  • Through open doors and windows
  • By building nests under eaves and then chewing through walls

Wasps tend to stay close to their birthplace, so the last thing you want is for them to start nests on your property. Contact a qualified exterminator if you are developing a wasp problem and nip it in the bud.

Many different insects mimic wasps to avoid predators, but only 2 main wasp species are common pests in California: yellowjackets and paper wasps.

Yellowjackets are aggressive and easily-provoked, making them more difficult to remove unassisted. Paper wasps are less volatile but can still be a problem since they frequently build nests near homes.

Both yellowjackets and paper wasps can threaten your property and disrupt your peace of mind, but different approaches may be required to deal with each type effectively. Our team can tell you what kind of wasps are living on your property and take the appropriate steps to remove them safely.

Here are a few useful tips for keeping wasps far from your home:

  • Use a combination of clove, geranium, and lemongrass essential oils to repel wasps from likely nesting areas (we know this sounds crazy, but it’s actually supported by research).
  • Consider hanging wasp traps close to your home—but don’t hang them too far away, since wasps can be useful visitors to your garden who deter other pests.
  • Seal any cracks in your siding.
  • Check areas where electrical lines enter the house and plug any gaps you find.
  • Keep waste bins sealed when not in use.
  • Avoid leaving fruit or sugary liquids outside for extended periods.

Even with these strategies at your disposal, wasps may still sometimes find their way into your house. If wasps are getting the best of you, contact us for help.
