Fitchburg Wasps Control
Here in Fitchburg, we have seen our fair share of wasps. Those of us that have been stung can rightly say it is more than our fair share. It seems like every spring they come out in huge numbers and attach their homes to ours. Where is the subletting agreement? To adequately establish Fitchburg wasp control, It is important to know why wasps are attracted to our homes. Just as important, we must know how to prevent them from coming back.
What Attracts Wasps?
The number one goal for a wasp is to set up a shelter to survive. That is why wasps usually build their nests around windows and doors to houses. The frame offers them protection from the heat, rain, and other types of weather. Not to mention, this is the architecture for producing more wasps – perpetuating their family.
With the wasps building nests on our homes, they can easily get into your house through an open window or door. Another area wasps love to hang out is in the attic. They will go out during the day and return at night. If you do not use your attic often, you may have wasps living there and not know it! Fitchburg wasp control is as much for the annoyances on the outside of the home as the potential threat of entry.
How to Prevent Wasps!
There are some simple steps to make sure wasps don’t come into your house. Setting up a preventative service with a pest control company is one of the best options, but there are some things you can do around the house as well. If you see any nests, have them removed and leave a product in the area to prevent them from returning. If you have hard-to-reach areas, professional help may be needed. Make sure your screens are free from holes or rips. Repair these windows so they can remain open and feel confident no wasps will come in.
What is a Common Wasp in Fitchburg?
One of the most common wasps you will find in Fitchburg wasp control plans is the paper wasp. Paper wasps get their name from how their nests are constructed. They are made with paper-like material with a single upside-down layer of cells that looks like an umbrella. Paper wasps are usually 3/4 to 1 inch long. These wasps like to feed on insects such as flies and caterpillars. They will attack when the nest is disturbed and can sting repeatedly. Other wasps we regularly deal with around our homes and businesses include:
- Yellow Jackets
- Bald Faced Hornets
- Mud Daubers
- Cicada Killers
- Digger Wasps
Don’t let up!
Changes in construction, landscaping, weather, etc. will bring changes to the wasp populations and behaviors. As you know, as foundations settle cracks and crevices develop that allow wasps and other pests to gain entry. Having routine inspections at least once each season by one of Rove Pest Control’s flying insect gurus will keep you ahead of the flying harpoon battles.
