Wasps & Hornets

Wasps and hornets are some of the most dangerous and troublesome pests around. They are well known for their ability to deliver a painful sting to anyone who might disturb them or their nests. One serious issue that is presented whenever wasps or hornets are found is that unlike bees, they can sting a person an unlimited number of times. Not to mention the fact that one sting will release pheromones that encourage other wasps in the nest to sting the same victim. For most people this is merely a painful hazard, but for a small segment of the population this sort of encounter can be life threatening due to allergic reactions to the stings.

Although there are many species of wasps and hornets, the majority of them are easily agitated and any nests should be treated with extreme caution both before and during the eradication process. In fact, more than any other pest, prior planning is essential when trying to get rid of a wasps nest, as failing to take the proper precautions can result in serious and painful stings that may require medical attention in extreme circumstances.

How To Get Rid Of Wasps & Hornets – Some Helpful Tips

  • Generally speaking, wasps are much more active during the day than at night. So when trying to get rid of a wasp nest, you are most likely going to have to attack it after the sun has gone down. This gives you an advantage in two ways, for one the insects are less likely to be overly active and will not strike back with as much vigor. Also, the nest is much more likely to contain most of the wasps making it unnecessary to apply the pesticides a second time.
  • Wasp spray is by far the most common type of wasp and hornet control product used. For a spray to be useful it has to be designed to instantly knock down and kill the insects before they have a chance to realize that their nest is under attack and retaliate by stinging the person doing the application. The best product for this application is ECO PCO Jet, which will provide instant killing power when used against any of the wasp and hornet species commonly found in the U.S.. Wasp repellent can also be used to treat an area where wasps are known to congregate, or where they are trying to make a nest.
  • When trying to get rid of wasps and hornets, it’s necessary to know exactly how their nests are constructed, so that you can apply the spray in the right location. Usually the entrance to the nest is located at the front, although you might need to carefully check and make sure that there aren’t any extra areas where the wasps can escape during the spraying.
  • It’s best to wear several layers of clothing, in an attempt to cover as much exposed skin as possible, both to avoid stings from any wasps that escape as well as to protect from exposure to the pesticide. You also will want to wear eye protection and gloves, to minimize the chance of stings.
