How To Identify And Safely Remove Wasps

Knowing The Difference Between Wasps and Bees

Many homeowners see their property as a safe haven where they can relax and not worry about a thing. Once spring rolls around and everyone is ready to get outside, the last thing you want to worry about is a child or even yourself being stung by an insect. If you notice insects buzzing around your property, you should identify it before taking action.


Bumble bees are non-aggressive pollinators that depend upon plants for their daily nutrition. However, bumble bees aren't the only type of bee. There are over 16,000 different species of bees! All bees are mostly black and yellow with hair all over their bodies. Without bees, we would quickly see a shortage in fruitful vegetation.

Bees are not aggressive and are very important for the pollination of crops and other vegetation. If you have a garden or flowers, it might be in your best interest to leave them on the property, at which point we suggest you call your local beekeeper. They will most likely know the best way to have the bees removed. However, colonies can grow and become a nuisance, at which point we suggest you call your local beekeeper. They will most likely know the best way to remove the bees from your property without causing the colony any harm.

Hornets & Other Wasps

Unlike Bees, wasps are carnivorous, meaning they feed off of other insects. The most commonly referred to is the hornet, which is simply a large type of wasp. Wasps are known to be aggressive and easily angered. Most likely, you have seen a wasp comb. They usually can be found in areas where they can hide from the weather and not be disturbed, such as sheds, porch or home overhangs, window seals, and objects lying about the property. Mature colonies can also find tight protected areas such as gaps in the siding of your home and fill them with a large comb-shaped nest.

Why You Should Have Wasps Exterminated ASAP

If you identify the buzzing insects to be wasps, it is time to take action. A single sting from a wasp can prove to be life-threatening to anyone with an allergy to them, and very painful to those without an allergy. Also, a wasp can sting more than once. This can create a dangerous situation if someone were to accidentally disturb a large colony. If you notice a large population of wasps, that means you may need professional help to control the insect problem on your property.

We had a wonderful experience with our technician. Weston was easy to talk to and explained everything well. Josh, who sold us the service, was very kind also. Not pushy at all. And very informative. Thank you. We look forward to working with you in the future.

My experience with Fox Pest Control has been the best experience I had with a pest control company. Technician, Harry, did a good job of going over the process thoroughly, ensure that I understood everything going on. I would recommend them to anyone looking for good, quality, fast, friendly, and affordable pest control services.
