wasps

These pests are a threat in and out of your home, so it’s best to remove a nest at first sighting. They are either solitary or social. Solitary wasps are predatory, and often parasitic, laying their eggs in another living creature like a spider or caterpillar. The eggs hatch and fed on the still living host until they are full born. Social wasps serve a queen that produces the eggs and governs the rule of the nest. Social wasps are more deadly than solitary wasp, but solitary wasp should not be ignored.

Characteristics

Social wasp collect into colonies and when threatened can be dangerous when disturbed. These pest can be a nuisance and often dangerous, but are a help to wildlife and agriculture. Some fed on the nectar of flowers and herbs and pollinate the patch. Even though they are helpful, their aggressive behavior should not be tolerated.

Removal

Like most other insects, wasps can get into your home through small openings, or unsealed entrances into your home. It is best to use screens or protective material to keep pests and other elements where they belong – outside. Wasps thrive off the life of their nest, so that is where you get rid of your problem.
