Wasp Behavior and Habits
The term wasp is a very general one, encompassing a wide range of species, including yellow jackets and hornets. They vary in size from microscopic to several centimeters long, but most are characterized as having two pair of wings and a pinched waist. There are solitary wasps, that operate alone, and also social wasps, which build nests and colonies. Wasps are frequently mistaken for bees, and vice versa, though wasps usually have less hair. Like bees, most can sting if threatened, but wasps tend to be more territorial and aggressive, and are usually capable of stinging more than once.
After hibernating through the winter, wasps start to build paper-like nests in late spring. They continue to increase the size of the nest and number of workers until late summer, when workers are at their peak, and the production of new queens and males begins. A typical wasp’s nest can vary in size from the size of a grapefruit to the size of a basketball. Nests are usually found in sunny spots, hanging from trees, but have also been located in the ground, walls, voids, landscaping, attics, and crawlspaces.

Our Wasp Control Process

A few species function as pollinators, while others help to control insect populations that prey on agricultural crops. But, because they are aggressive and stings can cause serious allergic reactions, it isn’t safe to have them around residential or commercial areas.
