With their small size, wasps may seem harmless but they can, in fact, be exceptionally dangerous. For those with allergies especially, the presence of wasps can be life-threatening, while for everyone else, they can still be uncomfortable to be around and they cause many people a great deal of anxiety. Unfortunately, every summer is the same, and much like here in the States, Toronto is quickly overrun by wasps.
Wasps will build their nests in trees, under your eaves, in your attic, in tree stumps in your lawn, and other places around your home. Since these pests can put their nests at so close to human habitations, one may accidentally bump into their nest and cause provocation. A sting of a wasp may cause an allergic reaction that can be fatal to children and adults, as well as house pets that don’t know to disturb a nest.
Wasps usually work in numbers when they feel threatened, responding as a hive. If they are going to attack one person, they will do it in large numbers. One single nest can contain thousands of wasps who will all attack at once if you attempt to remove the nest yourself. That’s why most Toronto homeowners rely on wasp nest removal companies like Power Pest Control to do the job for them.
Different types of wasps have different types of behavior, so it can help to know what type of wasp you are dealing with. If you live in Southern Ontario then you may be dealing with yellow jackets, paper wasps, bald-faced hornets or mud daubers. Yellow jackets are commonly found during late summer and become more aggressive during that time. Paper wasps are slow-flying insects with long legs with colors mostly composed of black; they can be found in unprotected combs above the ground. Mud daubers are solitary wasps that are usually found in nests of mud. Bald-faced hornets are considered as the larger versions of the yellow jackets. Pest control experts like Power Pest Control will also be able to quickly identify the type of wasp infesting your home before removing the nest.
Getting rid of their nests is the most effective way to eliminate wasps from your home. However, finding their nest can be quite a challenge. They can be found in tree branches, window sills, eaves of your house, etc. A professional should offer to give your property a complimentary investigation for the presence of other nests, something offered by Power Pest Control.
