Wasps on their nest.

If you are looking forward to a relaxing day on your deck or around your backyard pool, few things can ramp up your stress level more than having pesky insects like wasps buzzing around and leaving you worried about stings. Count on Bay Pest to deliver the best wasp control in the Bay Area.

When it comes to controlling an infestation of wasps, we are not satisfied until you are. We have the know-how, techniques, and equipment to take care of this problem for you.

Characteristics Of Common Wasps

Like most pests, common wasps are interested in finding food, water, and shelter. If your property provides these things and makes obtaining them easy, wasps are more likely to begin appearing near your home.

Wasp identification is the first step in determining whether you need to reach out to Bay Pest for help. Some of the ways you can spot common wasps include:

  • Bodies typically between half an inch and 1 inch in length
  • Black bodies with white or yellow markings
  • Often have a distinctly segmented body with a small waist
  • Flying insects with six legs
  • Able to sting victims repeatedly without injuring themselves

If you don’t want to get close enough to these insects to try to positively identify them, that’s completely understandable. The team at Bay Pest can visit your property and help you determine if you need outdoor wasp control

The Many Problems Wasps Can Cause Around Your Home And Yard

Controlling wasps is important on your property in the Bay Area because of the danger that these stinging pests can cause. If you have allergic reactions to wasp stings, having these insects around your home can be extremely dangerous for you. Even if you aren’t allergic, wasp stings are painful and can swell, so you will want to avoid risking a sting. When wasps build above-ground nests around your home, they could cause some damage to the structure as well. 

Should you have common wasps that build nests in existing holes in your yard, doing something as simple as mowing the yard could create an in-ground vibration that causes the insects to swarm and sting you, believing you are a threat.

Six No-Sweat Wasp Prevention Tips For Around Your Yard

After you let our team at Bay Pest control your wasp population, you may be looking for good advice on how to keep wasps away in the future. The six easiest prevention tips for wasps include the following:

  1. Do not leave food outdoors after you eat on your deck, as stray food attracts wasps.
  2. Place lids tightly on your trash cans to keep these insects away.
  3. Avoid leaving pet bowls with food and water unattended outdoors.
  4. If you have fruit trees on your property, try to pick up the fruit after it falls from the trees, rather than leaving it to rot.
  5. Fix leaky faucets or sprinkler heads to eliminate a popular water source for wasps.
  6. Keep trees, grass, and shrubs neatly trimmed near areas where people like to gather.

After inspecting your property, our professionals can provide some specific advice for preventing wasps from returning to your property, too.
