Plymouth Wasp Control
Preferred expert by 760 WJR’s Inside Outside Guys
I look forward to July in Plymouth. The weather is great and celebrations abound. My favorite is the Art in the Park tradition. I love being exposed to the new ideas and creativity that about in our community. Long before most of us get our focus set on what we will contribute to the displays, we have other members of our community using our property for their own Art in the Yard tradition. This tradition can be accompanied by a sharp sting unless we have an active Plymouth wasp control plan in place.
Paper as a Medium
I wonder how different art would be without the advent of paper. Paper is so common in our lives that we rarely give pause to think of how it came about. I also often hear the question regarding what wasps are good for and why they exist. Curiously, these two thought experiments overlap. We observed wasps making paper mache hundreds of years ago and realized that we could replicate this process and create a useful writing and drawing tool. Of course, we don’t build homes out of paper, but wasps do. The use of this flimsy material means that wasps need to protect their homes and nests from moisture. Therefore, we find them in overhangs of:
- Commercial buildings
Plymouth wasp control involves locating the nests and removing them to reduce the population at its source – ideally before the young ones reach adulthood.
I’m amazed at what people are able to do with wood at Art in the Park. They can visualize things that completely evade me as a potential. In a similar vein, wasps amaze me at what they are able to do with the wood around our homes. They are able to take wood from various sources around our homes and yards and turn them into a nice soft pulp that they can shape and sculpt into different homes. The different home builders that Plymouth wasp control targets include:
- Paper wasp nests – these are typically along well protected roof lines and look like upside down umbrellas with a honeycomb like bottom
- Bald faced hornets nests – These have the combs that are enveloped with a paper wall. They can be as large as a basketball and have an elongated oval to conical shape with the entrance being out the side toward the bottom
- Yellow jacket nests – these can take various forms such as half a cone plastered to a wall, paper walls in a taken over rodent burrow, or a full cone, globe or top shaped structure hanging from an overhang. For the hanging style nests their entrance is typically at the bottom
Ending The Festivity
Just like when the exhibits close down at the Art tradition when we shut down their paper creations. The wasps head elsewhere. This doesn’t mean they will pack up and leave our areas altogether. Plymouth wasp control requires persistence and vigilance. They may move 20 feet away or on the other side of the structure. Fortunately, the wasp experts at Rove Pest Control know all of their signature styles. Rove can provide a comprehensive plan to take care of the wasps at hand, stop them from coming back, and keep new wasps from arriving.
