Signs of a Wasp infestation

The biggest sign of a wasp infestation is the nest itself and nearby wasps swarming around your home. During the Spring, a Queen Wasps builds her nest for her wasps the size of a golf ball and as the number of Wasps increase the nest grows bigger.

Surprisingly, a nest can be as big as a basketball in size! Wasps love to build their nests on home exteriors such as eaves, gutters and soffits.

Wasps also build their nests near entry/exits of homes so the probability of a Wasp entering your home is very high since they are looking for a food source. The best way to handle an infestation is to call a professional to get it safely removed.

Wasp Facts

Wasps are beneficial in a way that they are predators and help us get rid of other unwanted insects around your home.

Wasps are highly attracted to sweet foods so keep those sugary goodies sealed and stored away. The best wasp traps are sodas, fruit juices and fruits! These are all great products for bait stations to control wasp and bees! They are also attracted to flowers and plant life so take precautions in your beautiful gardens.

When a Wasp stings, they sting multiple times and they don’t leave their stingers behind unlike bees. A Wasp’s venom also contains a pheromone that triggers other wasps to become aggressive and sting as well. Be careful not to swat one around other Wasps or even worst, a nest!

In the Winter time, Wasps die and end up abandoning their nest since they are never reused. Queens are then on search for a new location to build her new colony for the upcoming Spring time. Wasps live in their nests majority of the year so make sure you have a pest treatment to protect yourself and your loved ones!

Types of Wasps We Eliminate for You

There are about 4,000 species of Wasps but luckily there are only a few social wasps in the California Region. Typical social wasps in sunny California are Paper Wasps, Mud Daubers, and Yellow Jackets.

The first step on getting rid of wasp is to know what they look like! Wasps have a thin waist, which is the most noticeable thing that differentiates from other stinging pests.

The size of a wasp is the longest of the stinging insects group about 1 inch in size. The color of Wasps varies depending on which species but the most common color is a reddish brown and their body is also smooth and shiny.

Paper Wasps

Females are solitary and build nests from paper. These nests often appear along the eaves of homes during summer months. They are 2 – 4 inches across and have a honeycomb appearance.

This type of wasp is not very aggressive but when people disturb them they will defend their nest with their lives. Paper Wasps are a brown coloration with bright colored bands such as red and yellow.

Mud Daubers

Just like their name they build their nest with mud or clay, which is about 2 – 3 inches across with rows of round cells containing developing embryos. You will find these pests near puddles because they are collecting mud to build their nests.

Do not be surprised when you see ground nests or nests in crevices of your home because unlike other hornets and wasp they aren’t as aggressive. Just ensure not to intrude their home because they may sting! They are metallic with dark colors such as black and blue. Sealing the crevice or using insecticide dust is a great control product to kill wasp.

Yellow Jackets

All yellow jackets are wasps but not all wasps are yellowjackets. These are stinging wasps that build large communal hives. There are 3 different kinds of Yellow Jackets and can read more on the Yellow Jackets page. Most of the time they are not aggressive unless they are disturbed.
