Stinging Insect Control
Yellowjacket Pest Control
Yellowjacket nests can be found in the ground, in trees, in brush, or inside buildings. We use an aerosol to dispatch exposed nests. When nests are located inside cavities, we apply dust instead. Treatment is most effective when workers are inside the nest. Therefore, we typically treat overnight. However, depending on human traffic in the area, we can also safely treat nests during normal business hours. Our technicians wear bee suits to prevent stings.
Paper Wasp Pest Control
European paper wasp often build their nests in easily-accessible areas, making them a cinch to remove. During the spring, we dust higher elevations to stop their rooftop swarms. We use a telescopic pole with an attached duster to apply products.
Bald Faced Hornet Control
We dump a healthy serving of wasp and hornet spray into the entry hole of bald faced hornet nests. Once activity ceases, we cut the nest down, bag it up and remove it from site.
Mud Dauber Pest Control
Mud nests can easily be removed with a scraper tool. We work with the customer to implement cultural controls. You can eliminate these pests from your area by applying mulch to exposed soil and cutting back on irrigation. Our service often involves treating the perimeter of the home for spiders. Just like paper wasps, mud daubers are most active around the roofs of homes. To stop heavy mud dauber activity, we use extension bee poles to dust any crevice showing activity.
Carpenter Bee Pest Control
Long-term carpenter bee control entails treating the effected wood with fresh paint or stain. Because carpenter bees are pollinators, removing certain flowering plants may also be a valid option. Our treatment involves dusting or foaming galleries. Because caulk is difficult for them to chew through, caulking is a great way to fill in any damage from nesting activities, and can prevent future nests. It’s best to leave the treated holes exposed for a few days before you caulk, though. That way, any bee that was not in the nest during treatment will have a chance to come into contact with the applied product. If entry points are sealed prematurely, carpenter bees might return to the site and cause further damage.
