Stinging insects such as bees or wasps can be a nuisance, or worse. Allergies to bee and wasps stings are common and can be life threatening. If you want to help your family stay safe from these lurking dangers, let Tyto Pest Control keep your house safe.
Here are a few steps that Tyto Pest Control can help you with your wasp and bee control:
Step 1: Identify the Nesting Sites
A Tyto Pest Control technician will inspect structures and property to determine the type of insect, locate nesting sites, and create a management plan. Due to their beneficial nature, we do not exterminate honey bees. If there is a beehive on your property, we will refer you to a qualified bee keeper. They will come and remove the hive, often for free. The bee colony will be kept by the bee keeper and the bees will not be killed.
Wasps are generally much more aggressive and are a more frequent nuisance than bees. In Utah, yellow jackets and paper wasps are the primary wasp nuisances. Paper wasps make the paper-like nests often seen in eaves. Their colonies are generally small (15-200 individuals) and they are generally less aggressive than yellow jackets. Yellow jackets nest in the ground (often rodent burrows) or in cavities such as walls or ceilings. They form large colonies up to 15,000 individuals and are much more aggressive than paper wasps or bees. Take care to avoid their nests as they can be very defensive.
Step 2: Treat and Remove the Nest
The technician, wearing protective gear, will directly treat the wasp nest with a pesticide and will then physically remove the nest.
Step 3: Eliminate Food Sources & Place Traps as Necessary
If a nest cannot be located on the property, (such as when yellow jackets are scavenging from neighboring areas) the technician will recommend other steps to reduce the problem. Traps can be placed at the property boundaries and food sources should be kept inaccessible (keep garbage cans tightly sealed, don’t leave food outside). Traps should always be kept away from highly trafficked areas.
Time-frame & Guarantee
If the technician is able to locate and remove the colony, you will see an immediate and significant reduction. The wasp removal service is guaranteed for 60 days.
