Wasp Treatments


Wasp Nest Removal

If wasps have already set up their nest on your property, we’ll arrive in our wasp-resistant gear to remove it. If you’re uncertain of the nest’s location, there’s no need to worry! Our trained technicians know exactly where to look and are highly successful in discovering concealed wasp nests.

Following the nest’s removal, we suggest applying a preventative spray to deter the formation of future nests.

Avoid the risk of getting stung trying to handle it yourself, call Bugman instead. We’ll ensure the nest is safely removed so you don’t have to!

Wasp, Bee & Hornet Diets

Wasps and hornets are both omnivores and will eat pollen and nectar, as well as small insects like flies and caterpillars. Bees, on the other hand, are vegetarians and only eat pollen and nectar. Honey bees will also eat honey during the colder months.

Wasp, Bee & Hornet Bites and Stings

Wasps can sting and bite, but they only attack when threatened. However, hornets are much more aggressive and will sting even when there is no threat. Unfortunately, neither wasps nor hornets lose their stingers after attacking and they can sting you multiple times.

Unlike wasps, some bees, such as honey bees, die after attacking because their stingers are torn from their body. Most bees are not very aggressive, and will leave you alone if you do not bother them. However, bumble bes are more aggressive, and will chase people if they feel threatened.

Interesting Fact: Only female bees, hornets & wasps have stingers!

Wasps build different nests depending on the specific species. Solitary wasps build their nest underground or in sheltered areas, whereas social wasps and hornets build their nests above ground. These wasps usually build nests in tree trunks, tree branches or in the eaves of your home. The nest of a social wasp and a hornet is made of chewed-up and regurgitated wood.

Like wasps, a bee’s nesting type is dependent on the species. Honeybees make their nest out of wax, which is created by the worker bees. Bumblebees prefer to nest underground in abandoned holes, and carpenter bees nest inside of wood.

More Information About Wasps!

Wasps don’t generally survive through the winter. The queen – and females that will become queens – hibernate, but most other wasps in the colony will die when the cold arrives.

In some countries, wasps are used to control pests in crops, because they eat insects that are considered harmful to farming.

Wasps are more aggressive in the late summer to early fall because there is less food and they need to protect their queen.

Nests are only used once! If you want to keep wasps from building in the same location next season, leave part of the nest up to prevent their return.

Wasps are territorial, they don’t like to build nests close to one another. Setting up a decoy nest can be a great home remedy to prevent new builds.

Wasps release a pheromone when they sting you that tells other wasps to behave more aggressively, so it is not recommended to swat a wasp when others are near.
