All About Cincinnati Wasp Control

Cincinnati & Dayton’s #1 Wasp Control and Extermination Company

Wasps are beneficial insects, but when wasp nests are located near homes, control is warranted. These flying insects respond aggressively when they feel threatened, and the painful stings can be dangerous to both people and pets. TRS Extermination can handle all your Cincinnati wasp control needs, including wasp control.

How to Identify Wasps

There are several types of wasps that can be seen in yards, and they are easily confused with bees. Wasps can be identified by their slim waists and smooth, nearly hairless bodies. Bees tend to be hairy and don’t have defined waists. Some of the common wasps you could encounter include:

  • Paper wasps: Paper wasps get their name from the paper-like nests they build. These distinctive nests are never enclosed, so the combs are visible. The wasps are brown with yellow markings.
  • Yellow jackets: These well-known pests are between 3/8 and 5/8 inches long and have a black and yellow pattern. They may build their basketball-sized paper nests above ground, such as on houses or sheds. They may also build nests near the ground, like on logs or timber.
  • Bald faced hornets: Despite their name, bald faced hornets are actually wasps, not true hornets. Their bodies are mostly black, and their faces are white. Their beach ball sized paper nests can be seen hanging from trees, over hangs, and utility poles.

Avoiding Wasp Problems

Wasps sting when they feel threatened. If you find nests in out-of-the-way parts of your yard, or high in a tree, avoidance may be the best strategy. When cooler weather arrives in the fall, the wasps will die off, and the paper nests will disintegrate.

Wasps don’t need to nest in your yard to cause problems. Foraging yellow jackets may fly into your yard in their search for food. They’re attracted to sweet foods and drinks, like soda and fruit. To avoid attracting yellow jackets, keep food and drinks covered during picnics and barbecues. Remove trash promptly, and use garbage cans with tight lids.

Professional Wasp Control

If you find nests in high-traffic areas, the wasps can’t be ignored. However, wasp control can be very dangerous, so it shouldn’t be a DIY project.

Treatment for these stinging pests should be performed at night, when many of the insects have returned to the nest. When the nest is sprayed with insecticides, the wasps may react aggressively, and sting multiple times. Pest control professionals use wasp suits to protect themselves from angry wasps.

Wasps such as paper wasps, yellow jackets, and bald faced hornets can be dangerous, especially if they build their nests too close to your home. For help controlling these stinging insects, call TRS Extermination, the Cincinnati wasp control professionals.

After our older twin boys came home from school with bites near their wrists, and we did some investigating for similar bite marks online, we feared they might have brought beg bugs home with them into our house. TRS was able to come out, and did confirm the bites looked to be from bed bugs. However, after an extremely thorough inspection of our whole house, we were told no activity was detected. Rather than just ending with that, however, the amazing representative from TRS gave our family some helpful tips on what to do for the next couple weeks to limit the chances that our kids would bring anything home with them from school (assuming that is where the bites came from). We couldn’t be happier with the outcome of our inspection, and we feel confident knowing how thorough of a job TRS did inspecting our entire house!
