What do wasps look like?

Wasps are hairless insects, distinguishable from bees by their slender bodies. The thorax is joined to the abdomen by a pinched petiole, giving the appearance of a tiny waist. With three pairs of legs and two pairs of membranous wings, wasps are built for flight. Their heads contain typical insect components such as mouthparts, sense organs, compound eyes, and segmented antennae. Wasps vary in size and color across different species.

What do you do if you have a wasp infestation?

Some species of wasps create hives both below and above ground. If you see them entering or exiting from the ground, a nest is likely present. Be cautious, especially near the end of summer when wasps become more aggressive in collecting carbohydrates.

What is involved with Wasp Extermination?

When we arrive for wasp extermination in Edmonton, our process includes:

  • Finding the entrances/exits to the hive
  • Determining if the hive is above or below ground
  • Inspecting for other hives on the property
  • Spraying the hive with an insecticide that is effective and safe for people and pets

In some cases, the entire hive may need to be removed. Don’t wait if you have a wasp problem; contact Birch Fumigators today!

Facts About Wasps

  • Unlike bees, wasps do not produce honey.
  • Wasps will consume garbage and other waste when insects are minimal.
  • Only females have stingers, and their duty is to protect the hive.

I called Birch to have a hornets nest removed from under my overhang. Not only did they remove a very large nest with very angry wasps, but while they were explaining what they did, they noticed an ant nest on my patio that they quickly took care of!

Frequently Asked Questions

Wasps return to their nest at night, so it’s best to spray the nest in the evening when they’re less active. If you’re allergic to wasp stings, don’t try to remove the nest yourself. Call a professional for help. You can also spray wasps’ nests in the morning, but be sure to do it before the wasps become active. Be careful when spraying wasps’ nests, as some wasps may become aggressive. It is important to note that not all chemicals and methods will work for every infestation. Contact Birch Fumigators today for a free consultation to get tailored advice for your situation.

Wasp nests are most active in the spring and summer months, so that’s when you’ll need to be most vigilant about spraying them. If you see wasps flying in and out of a nest, or if you see a nest itself, you should take action to spray it. Contact Birch Fumigators for Wasp Extermination Services

There are a few telltale signs that wasps may have nested in your walls. If you hear a high-pitched buzzing sound coming from your walls, this is a good indicator that wasps are present. You may also see wasps flying in and out of cracks or holes in your walls. Another sign of a wasp nest in your walls is if you see wasp larvae or pupae. If you suspect wasps have nested in your walls, it’s best to call a pest control professional to safely remove the nest.

Yes, wasps do typically leave on their own, but this depends largely on the season and the specific species of wasp. Most wasps are considered seasonal insects with a lifecycle that begins in spring and ends in late autumn. Queen wasps emerge from overwintering in early spring to start new colonies. The colonies grow throughout the summer months, reaching their peak in late summer and early autumn. As colder weather sets in, the worker wasps and the old queen die off, and new queens leave the nest to find a place to overwinter and start a new colony the next spring.

In temperate climates, this means that if you can tolerate a wasp nest for a few months, it may well be that the problem resolves itself with the onset of winter. However, during the active months, wasps can be quite aggressive in defending their nest, and their stings can be painful, posing a risk especially to those allergic to wasp stings. Therefore, if the nest is in a location that poses a threat to human activity, it may be necessary to remove it earlier, which is a task usually best left to pest control professionals due to the risks involved.

Wasps are attracted to sweet food and drinks, so they are often found near picnic areas or garbage cans. If you suspect you have a wasp nest on your property, contact Birch Fumigators today for a free consultation.

It is best to leave wasp nest removal to the professionals. It depends on a number of factors, including the type of wasp, the size and location of the nest, and whether or not you’re allergic to wasp stings. If you’re not sure whether or not you should remove a wasp nest, it’s best to consult with a professional. Wasp nests in the ground should only be removed by a professional. If the nest is above ground, you may be able to remove it yourself, but be sure to take proper precautions and have an escape route planned in case of attack. Wasps are most active during the day, so it’s best to remove the nest at night when they are less likely to be around. Birch Fumigators offers wasp nest removal in Edmonton and the surrounding areas.

Getting rid of a wasp nest should be approached with extreme caution, as wasps can be aggressive and their stings can be dangerous, especially for individuals with allergies. It’s often advisable to contact a professional pest control service for safe removal. However, if you decide to handle it yourself, make sure to do it during the evening or early morning when wasps are less active. Wear protective clothing covering your entire body, including gloves and a face net. Use a wasp spray that allows you to apply it from a distance, and carefully follow the instructions on the label. After spraying, give it a day to ensure all wasps are eliminated. Once you’re certain there is no activity around the nest, use a long pole or tool to knock it down. Keep a safe distance and be prepared to move away quickly in case there are any remaining wasps. After removing the nest, seal any openings or cracks around your home to prevent wasps from building another nest in the future.
