Wasp Control

If you've ever been stung by a wasp, then you know how unpleasant they can be. In addition to their painful stings, wasps can be quite dangerous, especially if you're allergic to their venom. Wasps are not only a nuisance but also a potential health hazard. If you have a wasp problem, it's important to take action and get rid of them as soon as possible.

On this service page, we'll discuss the various types of wasps and how to identify them. We'll also talk about the best ways to get rid of wasps and keep them from coming back. Let's start by talking about some basic facts about wasps.


5 Things You Didn't Know About Wasps

  1. A wasp can live for over a month without food.
  2. A wasp nest typically consists of one queen, male drones, female workers, and larvae.
  3. Only female wasps sting because they need to defend their nests or hurt prey; males do not have stingers.
  4. Wasps burrow into the wood to make their tunnel-like nests called skeps, which are often built under eaves of buildings or within roof spaces above ceilings.
  5. Male wasps feed on honey gathered by the females and sell it to other insects like ants or bees if there is no food around when these social insects come looking for provisions.

Types of Wasps

Wasp Mud Daubers

Mud daubers are a type of wasp that live in nests made from mud, peat, and straw.

Their mouthparts consist of a set of mandibles shaped like a beak, but their front legs do not have claws or other adaptations for handling insects they may capture. Mud daubers eat the larvae and adults from the colony they inhabit as well as honeypot ants they find nearby. They can also consume trapped water droplets to provide them with the hydration needed to survive without food or rain.

Mud dauber wasps build their nests by scraping the sides of mud with their mandibles. They then mix the mud with their saliva to make it pliable. Once the nest is built, the female wasp will provision it with paralyzed spiders and fly larvae for her young.

Cicadas Wasp Killer

One of the most dangerous species of wasps is the Cicada Killer. Cicada Killers are so-called because they primarily prey on cicadas. They are large wasps that can be up to 2 inches long and are primarily black in color. They are not aggressive and will usually only sting humans if they feel threatened.

Cicada Killers build their nests in open areas like bushes or near trash cans. Their nests consist of one queen, male drones, female workers, and larvae. Cicada Killers are the largest of the common Canadian wasps and will attack if they feel threatened.

Yellow Jacket

A yellow jacket is a type of wasp that typically nests in protected areas such as between rocks, under decks, and garden structures. Yellow jackets are mostly yellow and black in color and feed on honey gathered by the females and will sell it to other insects like ants or bees if there is no food around when these social insects come looking for provisions.

Hornet

Hornets are the largest of the common Canadian wasps. They are black and yellow and can sting without provocation. Hornets are the largest of the common Canadian wasps and will attack if they feel threatened. A hornet’s nest is typically built high up in the branches of a tree, on top of posts or fences, or on ledges.
