Wasps

Wasp Identification & Prevention

What are wasps?

The abdomens of wasps appear smooth and bullet-shaped. They have dark colored wings, usually ranging from dark amber to black that fold lengthwise, making the wings appear smaller than they really are. Their nests are made of paper-like material, which is a mixture of wood and salivary secretions of the female wasps.

Are wasps dangerous?

They build their nests around human establishments, and many people are allergic to wasp stings. Due to their defensive nature, nesting wasps are easily provoked to sting when their nest is disturbed. It’s vital to seek insect pest control for the safety of you and your family or employees.

How do I get rid of wasps?

A professional insect pest control treatment is the best way to reduce wasps in a given area. These wasps can be very aggressive and seeking professional help is highly recommended. High Country Pest Control offers a professional home treatment for the reduction of wasps. Our technicians are thoroughly trained to address your wasp problems.

How can I prevent wasps in the future?

Preventing a wasp problem is difficult, but for outdoor summertime events, it is important to eliminate their food sources. The following steps will help:

  • Keep all food and beverages in covered containers
  • Clean up spills as soon as possible
  • Use covered waste containers

Don’t waste time and money on over-the-counter remedies or unprofessional service. Call High Country Pest Control for reliable pest control service and a free phone quote today.

    "Grateful"

    High Country Pest Control helped me with a mouse issue in my house. They came out very quickly and set up stations all around my house. When they came back for the follow up, the stations gave me a clear idea of what state my issue was in.

    Remembered me from last year. If I had continued with monthly service I wouldn't be terrorized by a full on mouse invasion. Highly recommend their services.
