Wasps often pose the greatest threat towards the end of summer when insect populations die off as the temperatures drop and they start to plague us at our outdoor picnics in search of meat contributions to take back to feed their offspring.
We strongly advise you NOT to tackle a bee or wasp colony unless you have the adequate protective clothing and know exactly what you are doing.
Don’t spray them with common household insect sprays as this may just madden them and cause the colony to attack whoever and whatever is in the immediate vicinity.
Pets, in particular, are often the unwitting victims of our attempts to rid ourselves of bee and wasp invaders so BEWARE when you start to take action against their nests.
Eradicating bee and wasp nests from your GTA home or workplace
At Pest Free Living we have a tried and tested strategy that enables us to eliminate bees and wasps with the minimum of disruption or danger to you and your family or colleagues.
We will first determine the nature and scope of the colony that is causing problems and verify the location of the nest.
The nests of social bees and wasps are very obvious because they probably hang down from the corner of a verandah, porch or tree and are hard to miss.
Once we have mapped the location of the nests we will exterminate and remove the nest (if accessible) wearing full protective clothing so that we can safely remove the colony or apply the appropriate dust or spray pesticide.
Solitary bees and wasps create multiple nests in various sheltered holes throughout your yard and lawn and these may take more time to identify and demarcate. However, these we can treat during the daytime when they leave the nest in search of a protein supply for their young.
If you would like more information on effective ways of dealing with stinging insect and other flying pests, please contact Pest Free Living today.
We work 24/7/365 throughout the Brampton, Mississauga, Vaughan and Richmond Hill areas of the GTA and will be pleased to make a visit to your property.
