Signs That Your Home Has a Wasp Problem

Signs That Your Home Has a Wasp Problem

When the weather warms up in Texas, wasps and hornets begin to linger around local properties and make themselves at home.

Unfortunately, a wasp or hornet nest can be built covertly and the first sign of a problem is an initial attack on your property. Unlike bees, wasps can sting a victim multiple times. 

Reactions to a sting can vary between discomfort and severe allergic responses. With a warm fall around the corner, Dallas-Fort Worth homeowners should never take a chance on these insects hanging around their homes.

The team at Buzz Kill has seen the worst that wasps can bring to the property and highly recommend scheduled pest control services at the first sign of an infestation.

How Do You Know You Need Wasp Removal Services?

Don’t wait for that first sting to look for a wasp extermination service. Look out for these warning signs that it’s time to call in a pest control expert.

You See Them Around Your Property

A single wasp sighting usually isn’t cause for alarm. However, if you notice that sightings become more frequent, this is a sign that you likely have a wasp infestation somewhere on your property. 

What Do Wasps Look Like?

Wasps are typically larger flying insects. They are identified by their long wings, elongated abdomen, and black and yellow bands across their bodies. 

When flying wasps will leave their legs held close to their body.

If you notice insects that match these descriptions, it’s time to reach out to a pest control expert to safely find the root of your problem.

You Find a Nest

Most wasps’ nests are found in sheltered areas of a property. Some of the most common places homeowners find a wasp nest are:

  • Attics
  • Beneath the Roof
  • Porch Awnings
  • Fence Corners
  • Garages
  • Tree Trunks

It can be difficult to recognize a wasp’s nest while it’s under construction. However, some of the most obvious signs are small remnants of mud, clay, or wood accumulated in a usual nesting spot.

Nests are much easier to deal with the earlier they are identified. So, as soon as you find what you believe to be a wasp’s nest, call for a local pest control team immediately.

Chewed Up Wood on Your Property

One common material for wasps to use during nest creation is paper. They, unfortunately, obtain this material by chewing up the wood elements of your home. If you find that you have small holes in the wooden surfaces of your porch fence or other areas of the home, you either need wasp control services or termite control. Either way, Buzz Kill Pest Control is ready to help!
